Former Activision executive vice president of publishing Robin Kaminsky has joined the board of Rift and Defiance publisher Trion Worlds.

Speaking to VentureBeat, Kaminsky said her considerable experience will be of use to Trion as it expands its catalogue of free-to-play MMOs.

“I love their approach to the market. They are very much at the cutting edge as an online team. They have put a real emphasis on free-to-play. I believe the future is in online free-to-play games, and so I am excited to be involved with them,” she said.

The new board members said Trion has a full slate of games on the horizon, and that it is adjusting its approach to micro-transactions after years of subscription business models.

As well as her stint at Activision from 2005 to 2008, Kaminsky has held executive positions in several other non-gaming tech and toy companies, and was once an advisor to Gaikai.
