by: Sean Colleli -

Trion Worlds has been fine-tuning their MMO RIFT for a while now but as of today, it's finally available on Steam. The free version of Rift is fully available to Steam users now, including the ascended class system, the Storm Legion expansion and the game's other 16 major updates. Free to play seems to be the smartest model for MMOs these days and putting RIFT on Steam just guarantees that it will be available to one of the biggest online communities, and potential customer bases, around.
