Rift, a once P2P MMORPG now Free to Play MMORPG by Trion Worlds is set in a world being torn apart by mystical energies. Play as either a Gaurdian or a Defiant in your fight for control of the ever-changing planes of Telara, choosing from 40 unique souls to create your own custom class. Be careful though, Telara is plagued with dimensional rifts that can occur at any moment, offering brave warriors untold power, or unleashing invasions of extra-planar beings bent on destruction.
Rift's soul system is quite robust. Players can opt to use three souls at a time (although more can be used by switching specs) with each one contributing unique passives and active abilities to the player's character. As a player puts more points into a singular soul, they unlock more abilities to utilize for that soul.
The MMO offers dynamic Rift events which spawn a variety of enemies in certain locations and usually require groups of players to to tackle. If players ignore these Rifts enemies will begin a crusade towards nearby towns, capturing them and preventing players from turning in quests or utilizing the hubs services. Players will then need to recapture the hub in order to regain control. Occasionally, large open world raid bosses will spawn from these Rifts which require a coordinated effort to tackle.
Rift's endgame is quite expansive, boasting multiple dungeons and raids with up to 20 people. Players looking for more open world content can participate in instant adventures which party players together in raids and have them completing multi-stage quests sprawling across a zone. PvP is also available, with Rift offering multiple Warfronts and open world PvP to take part in. Each with their own innovative mechanics and rewards.
