RIFT players are being handed codes to give to friends who have yet to try the MMO, and pals who recieve this code will be able to play the game for free this weekend during the Allies of the Ascended special event.

Ally Codes only grant access from April 1 through April 4, after which, in order to continue to play the game you much purchase it along with a monthly subscription fee.

To apply an Ally Code, should you receive one, you must follow these instructions:

  • Log in to your Trion Worlds account, or create a new account if you do not already have one.
  • If you are not automatically redirected, click the “Apply Code” menu item.
  • Enter the Ally Code you received from your Ascended ally.
  • Download the RIFT patcher by clicking the “Download Client” button in the “Manage Account” section of your Trion Worlds account, or click here.
  • Install the RIFT patcher, update the game, and you’re ready to play!
  • Event schedule: 10am PDT April 1, 2011 through 10am PDT April 4, 2011.

Ally Codes will grant new players a digital download of RIFT and access to certain features of this game during the Allies of the Ascended Event. You will need to have or create a Trion Worlds account to participate in this event.

RIFT requires a recurring monthly subscription fee and an internet connection in order to play. To continue playing RIFT upon conclusion of the Allies of the Ascended Event, the player must purchase the game as well as purchase a subscription fee or sub cards.

Those who have yet to try the game out should hit up someone they know for a code.

Thanks, Nemmy.
