Rift/Team Fortress Cross Promotion

Valve and Trion Worlds announce a cross promotion for players who pre-purchase Rift on Steam between now and March 1st that grants access to a pair of exclusive melee weapons in Team Fortress 2, the Sharpened Volcano Fragment and the Sun-on-a-stick, and an equally exclusive Well Spun Hat to wear in Rift after completion of a new TF2 achievement. Word is: "All Steam pre-order customers will receive the weapons, including those who’ve already purchased Rift through the digital platform. This offer is available to Steam users worldwide." These screenshots show off the items, and here's word on how to collect them: "Team Fortress 2 players will automatically receive the melee weapons beginning today, while players lusting after the Well Spun Hat must complete the new “Riftwalker” achievement. After applying the code on their Trion account page, Rift players will receive the hat in their in-game mailbox beginning with the game’s headstart period on February 24th."

25. Rift/Team Fortress Cross Promotion Feb 4, 2011, 05:09 AnointedSword
I have to agree that the rifts are good for first few times someone see them and interacts with them. After awhile it gets old fast. I do believe other companies can learn from rifts, but rifts alone will not be enough to keep this game up. The animation and graphics are sub par. Wow had cartoony graphics, but what most people over look is that the animation is top notch.

The game plays a lot more like Warhammer:Online than Wow to me. Rift will be free to play within in year.

P.S. To mention Azeroth in an ad is just laughable. This is not even a Warhammer killer:/
If you were right, I would be agreeing with you.
