Trion Worlds has announced the launch of RIFT Lite, which will allow those with a Trion account to play the first 20 levels if the MMO with zero restrictions.

Lite debuts alongside the update 1.7, Carnival of the Ascended, which features Ascended Weddings, PvP improvements, the new River of Souls Chronicle, a new Master Mode Dungeon, an Expert Dungeon overhaul, and better endgame equipment.

Carnival of the Ascended starts its initial stage today, and is a precursor to a World Event which kicks off in a few weeks and will include in-game events, special loot, prizes, and more.

“In the past ten months, Rift has evolved at a breakneck pace, through seven massive updates that set new expectations for live MMOs, in features, in content, and in service,” said executive producer and Trion COO Scott Hartsman.

“We think a Lite edition with no time limit is the best way for players to see what an amazing experience Rift continues to be.”

RIFT Lite is accessible across all servers.
