Question about Rift lite

nethrillnethrill manchester, CTPosts: 122Member

I played Rift upon launch for a while and am thinking about coming back. Is Rift lite the same game with limitations or is a seperate game altogether and not connected with the main Rift population?

    I think the big limitation is the game is only free from level 1-20. If you have presious characters above 20, you need to pay the sub to play them. Or, you can make new characters to play from 1-20.

    It is basically a trial with no time limit.

    So if I understand this correctly I don't have to create a new separate trial account? I played the game on release and quit after a little while, and I was thinking of starting again. So I can actually log onto my old account and just play characters under level 20 without paying the sub fee?

    Correct, you can log into your original account and play with the restrictions that I mentioned above. When and if you decide to re-sub, the restrictions will be lifted.

    i personally think its a fair deal, log in, play all you want, try all you want, if you loke the game at lvl 20, sub.

     

    (not mentioning thta i think gw2´s model will win in the future :))

    Here is my dilemma or maybe.....Played rift at release and a little after. I am unsubbed but heard about the 1-20 free trial. So i launched my Rift and it updated. I logged in but was still able to access my toons that were lvl 20+. My question is did they give old subbers a free month of play for the anniversary or how is it I can still log in my lvl 20 toons that are not on the trial servers?
