Rift, like most online RPG games, makes you pay a monthly subscription fee to play. Here is how that subscription fee works:
- If you pay per month it costs $14.99 USD a month.
- Sign up for 3 months and pay $12.29 a month.
- Sign up for 6 months and pay $10.29 a month.
- Sign up for 12 months and pay $8.99 a month.
As you can see, signing up for a longer 'term' will save you quite a lot of money. If you want to make some savings but are not sure how long you want to play Rift for, then purchase a prepaid game card. This means you get 2 months of playing time- long enough to sample the game fully- for $23.99. This is a pretty handsome saving on the price you would normally pay for two months.
