Trion Worlds is waving the need for subscription to Rift this weekend as they let anyone who owns a copy of the MMORPG enjoy its fruits for "5 full days" between may 30th and June 3rd. Rift plans to go F2P fulltime.

This is a little treat for the current subscriber populace. Next month the switchover occurs. Soon enough it will be free-to-play for all. Monthly subs are so last MMO-gen.
