MMORPGing’s not cheap, and when you’ve got one subscription on the go, it’s tempting to ignore other options. Happily, a Steam sale gives you the chance to take the plunge and still make your budget this week.

The US Steam portal is offering two editions of RIFT at a reduced price – the standard at $33.49, down from $50, and the collector’s at $40.19, down from $60.

Both editions include a bonus item pack, and more importantly, 30 days’ subscription, meaning you get a month without fees to give it a go.

You’ve got until May 23 to take advantage of the deal.

The Trion Worlds MMORPG is also sporting a seven day trial and refer a friend program to tempt newbies.

Thanks, Joystiq.
