Loyalty is one of those things that transcend life, as you hear the world in numerous places. In business, in sports, and yes, even in video games. For video games though, loyalty can mean many different things. Loyalty to a publisher or developer, loyalty to a franchise, or just plain loyalty to a single title that you wish to support by giving it your money. The MMORPG Rift likes to honor players for their loyalty, and are doing a special loyalty service because of it.
You see, in Rift, if you make in-game purchases, you get what is called Loyalty Points. These Loyalty Points can add up over time, and eventually lead to some pretty sweet rewards.
Now, as this system is based on in-game purchases, it can be taxing to try and get to the higher tiers. Therefore, the team behind Rift are doing something special for the next week. From the 14th to the 21st, all purchases made in the game will give you double the loyalty points you would’ve earned. Now, there is a small catch, this bonus only applies to purchases with credits in the Rift store. It does not apply to REX, Patron, or “non-credit” purchases. So if you want to get the bonus, you have to do it their way.
Again, it only goes until the 21st, but this could be a great opportunity for you to get some extra items, or maybe close the gap in regards to the next loyalty rewards tier that you are aiming for. So if you got the credits, go get those points.
