The marketing team over at Trion Worlds has been rather crafty about getting the word out about their upcoming MMORPG Rift. And this latest offer is a brilliant bit of marketing that can net players some fun new items. The Rift and Team Fortress 2 teams have teamed up to bring you some fun cross-gaming exclusive items. If you pre-order Rift through Steam before March 1st, you will receive two exclusive melee weapons for Team Fortress II: the Sharpened Volcano Fragment and Sun-on-a-Stick. But that's not all. The Valve team is also adding a permanent Team Fortress II achievement called "Riftwalker", which will grant players a special code that can be redeemed in Rift for an exclusive headpiece, the terrifying Well Spun Hat. Check out the official announcement and screenshots below.

YOU GOT RIFT IN MY TEAM FORTRESS 2!
Valves Team Fortress 2 is about to be invaded by Rift, the upcoming MMO from Trion Worlds. Both companies announced today that Steam customers who pre-order Rift by March 1st will receive two exclusive melee weapons in Team Fortress 2: the Sharpened Volcano Fragment and Sun-on-a-stick. Additionally, the Valve team is adding a permanent Team Fortress 2 achievement that grants players a redeemable code for an equally exclusive (and terrifying) headpiece in Rift,the Well Spun Hat.
Team Fortress 2 players will automatically receive the melee weapons beginning today, while players lusting after the Well Spun Hat must complete the new Riftwalker achievement. After applying the code on their Trion account page, Rift players will receive the hat in their in-game mailbox beginning with the games headstart period on February 24th.
All Steam pre-order customers will receive the weapons, including those whove already purchased Rift through the digital platform. This offer is available to Steam users worldwide.
