Trion declares RIFT Prime a ‘massive success’ with ‘thousands’ of subbing players

[AL:Rift]You’d hardly expect an MMO company to send along a press release declaring its game a failure, right? Indeed, Trion’s PR this morning argues that RIFT’s Prime progression server was a “rousing success,” noting that in its first month, “thousands” of gamers have given it a try (and therefore, subbed or resubbed to the 2011 MMORPG).

“Thousands of players have jumped into the new server, taking in all of the excitement and classic RIFT content on offer,” Trion says. “In the first month of the availability of Vigil, the RIFT Prime server, players completed more than five million quests and tens of thousands of dungeons. The server’s active population has stayed high since its deployment last month, and the first days of the server saw hundreds of players teaming up to conquer some of its biggest challenges in record numbers.”

In fact, players set a record in RIFT: “A dynamic event in Silverwood on day one had the most participants of any event in RIFT history,” according to Producer Amanda Fry.

What’s coming next? Raiding.

“In the coming weeks, players can anticipate the first raid to hit the server, where they will face off against the mighty dragon Greenscale, and even more exciting content.”

Massively OP’s Justin Olivetti has been deep-diving the Prime server, delivering both a guide to help others get to started and a recent hands-on impressions piece. Here’s a quick look at our coverage since the Prime launch:
