A really great way to get me back into a game that I haven’t played in a while is to offer up some sort of free item for me to claim. I’m a sucker for those things, I admit it. So when I saw that Raptr was offering up the game for free, the expansion (storm legion) along with it, AND 30 days of game time – if you qualified – of course I went to check it out. Low and behold thanks to my previous time in Rift I did qualify. You need to be from a participating country, and already be ranked as experienced in the game. Even people who have not purchased the game could thus qualify as the first 20 levels are free to play.
The free stuff didn’t stop there though. I was also able to claim a Raptr pet, which is for elite ranked players, some shoulders, and a helm. That may have been a bit of over kill, but again who am I to say no to free things.
So now I have 30 days tacked on to my account, and I’ll want to log in and check out the player housing. Whether or not I stay after that initial 30 days is undecided. There are always so many games on my plate that unless that specific game happens to be THE ONE that I want to play 75% of the time, I tend to move on. I think that Raptr and Rift teaming up is a very neat project, and I’m sure it motivates at least a few sales. Plus it gets word about the game around again when players have perhaps not heard too much going on (although Defiance did just launch, and I’m sure Trion has been busy with that).
Have you claimed any Raptr rewards since they started regularly adding them? What do you think of them so far? Let me know in comments!
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself
