RIFT servers in Russia are shutting down today

Friday, 25th October 2013 21:14 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Russian servers in RIFT are shutting down today, as Trion Worlds will no longer be supporting the localized version. Belver Online, the company responsible for the localized version, is offering players compensation via other online games it operates. The Russian version RIFT saw many players migrate to the Eruopean servers after the game went free-to-play, but the subscription-based model was still available in the region – until today. Trion has no plans to produce its own, Russian-localized client. Thanks, Massively.

    Did you catch the update, including Trion’s statement on this? They have been really good with players affected by this. It seems that the local licensed Russian publisher behaved incredibly badly to its players, for instance charging unauthorised transfer fees (around $100 each!) and continuing subscriptions beyond the time the game would even be active!

    The American publisher is transferring players of the defunct Russian version to TW Rift that want to continue to play the game.
