While you’re probably stuck with that increasingly aging nomer you’ve been saddled with since birth, your Trion Worlds game character could be in for an identity change at the end of this month. The studio announced that it is planning to reclaim abandoned characters’ names soon, which means that if you want to preserve yours, you’ll need to log onto those characters by January 31st.
The name reclamation process is coming to RIFT, ArcheAge, and Trove (PC version only), and will affect characters that have not logged into these games since January 31st, 2017. Trion won’t be deleting these toons, mind you, but simply freeing those names up for active players to use. If you return to an abandoned character after the 31st, you’ll be given the opportunity to rename him or her.
