Rift client temporarily marked down to $5

Rift appears to be one of the only recent title to take a modicum of wind out of World of Warcraft's sails. It makes sense, then, that Trion would respond to WoW's new free-to-play mode with an offer of its own: namely, the temporary markdown on the Rift client to a measly $4.99.

Discounts available through July 6. Standard Editions include 30 free days of game time.
Don't forget, you can check out Rift for free for seven days by downloading the client here.

[Thanks, Mike!]
