Trion Worlds announces Rift Lite, offers first 20 levels of online game for free

Video game publisher Trion Worlds is trying to draw new players into its fantasy-themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game Rift by offering “Rift Lite,” a version of the game that will allow anyone with a Trion account to experience the first 20 levels for free. The move is similar to one Blizzard Entertainment took in June 2011 with its hugely popular MMORPG World of Warcraft.
