'Rift' Gets 7-Day Free Trial, Ascend-a-Friend Referral Program

Rift: Planes of Telara is an online game set in a world being torn apart by dimensional "rifts" that tear into the land of Telara, releasing powerful forces that threaten the very existence of the entire universe.

Adventure in the world of Telara as either a noble Guardian or technomagical Defiant and enter a dynamic fantasy where 8 primal forces battle for control in an ever-changing landscape. Build your own class using the Ascended Soul system, embark on epic conflicts that bring you into the story, battle others in exhilarating Player vs. Player combat, achieve new heights of power by tackling epic raids, and so much more.  

Rifts and other dynamic events can be triggered by players, scheduled by the development team, or even occur spontaneously. Dynamic events within the game can lead to a range of changes across the world, including everything from minor events to dramatic shifts in the game’s landscape and the opening of new areas. Players will connect with hundreds of thousands of other gamers to battle creatures overrunning the world, as well as each other.

The RIFT free trial is your chance to become one of the mighty Ascended. Experience massive invasions by the forces of the Blood Storm, explore the nearly limitless possibilities of the Ascended Soul class system, and battle for the fate of Telara for 7 days.

Recruit your friends though email, Facebook, or Twitter and become a force to be reckoned with! Tackle more challenging dungeons and rifts and turn the tide of battle by inviting your friends to play the RIFT free trial. You’ll reap ever-more-amazing benefits as new Ascended answer your call!

Assemble the Ascended, ride into battle, and fight for glory!


With every friend who purchases RIFT, you will gain one of these rewards:

  • 3rd Friend, Swift Ember Steed: A hellish horse that matches the speed of the fastest steed in your collection.
  • 2nd Friend, Trailblazer's Hat: Wear this hat with pride as you blaze new trails through Telara.
  • 1st Friend, Courage: A companion pet who is loyal on many levels.

  • You and your friends will be able to summon one another once every 30 minutes.
  • Your Ascended friends’ characters will be automatically added to your Friends List, and your characters will be added to theirs.
