RIFT is quickly becoming one of the most popular MMOs on the market, with millions of players and a ridiculously fast-pace content schedule. Patch 1.7 has just gone live, and brings with it a slew of interesting changes to the way the game works.

The biggest change, however, doesn?t really affect current RIFT players, but potential ones. As of patch 1.7, anyone with a Trion Worlds account can jump right into the world of RIFT for the low, low price of nothing at all.

This new game feature, crowned RIFT Lite, allows you to play up to level 20 without restrictions ? that?s no time limits, no chat blocking, and no item locks. It?s a very cool idea that?s catching on in the world of MMOs, as it always brings fresh players who were reluctant to plunk their cash down on an unproven game. And level 20 is no small feat for a new player, requiring quite a few hours of in-game time.
