On Valentine’s Day, 21,879 couples took virtual marriage vows in Rift, matching nearly 44,000 players with their in-game soul mates. Rift will now take its place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most in-game marriages in a 24 hour period.
“Establishing this record was a monumental achievement for our development team and community of passionate players, and I couldn’t be more proud,” said Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer on Rift and Trion’s CCO. “Ascended Weddings were a great way to lift the veil on Rift’s new ‘Gatherings’ feature, social experiences that bring players together in new and interesting ways. We look forward to expanding this great new gameplay element in the always-evolving world of Telara.”
