RIFT Headstart Begins Today

There's nary a week left before the official North American launch of Rift, and developer Trion Worlds confirms that one million user accounts for the MMO have been created to date, the first in what they hope will be many milestones as they vie for World of Warcraft's gold-studded throne.

If the feedback to our own beta key giveaways last year was any indication, Rift is hotly anticipated!  Trion Worlds believs Rift has both the production values and product differentiation to stand against the "current incumbent"; since they're always eyed a subscription business model for Rift, they've set the MMO's quality bar high to make it worth the shot.

Rift's "Head Start" advance play period has also kicked off for players who pre-ordered the game, granting them early access to the servers before the floodgates open next week.

If you haven't pre-ordered yet but want to get in on the action, Rift pre-orders are still available at and the special Founder’s Subscription plan will be available until March 15th.
