Perhaps in an attempt to keep the game relevant as Rift faces its greatest threat yet in the form of Star Wars: The Old Republic, Trion Worlds has announced that for a limited time Rift is going on sale.

From December 22 to January 2, Rift will only set you back $5. However, since Rift is a subscription title you’ll still need to buy a month of game time at $15. Players will also benefit from an enhanced XP-gain event as well. Players will get a 15% bonus on XP, favor, prestige, plaques of achievement, marks of ascension, and planarite.
