Trion Worlds launched its 1.2 update for RIFT today, adding the second massive content patch since its March 1st launch. But today also marks the start of a new 7-day trial and "Ascend-a-Friend" program option. Starting today, players can sign up for seven days of RIFT for free. As an added incentive, subscribers can invite an unlimited number friends to try the game, and if they decide to purchase it, that player can earn several in-game rewards which include: Courage, an in-game canine pet, the Trailblazer hat and the Swift Ember Steed.
Additionally, subscribers that invite another player that buys the game will also earn a power that will allow them to summon each other once every 30 minutes. Check out the official press release after the break for more details.
