21,879 Marriages in Rift on Valentine’s Day — Guinness World Record
21,879 marriages took place in Rift on Valentine’s Day, setting the Guinness World Record title for most in-game marriages in a 24-hour period. Guinness World Records will log the marriages and the record will be considered for inclusion in the 2013 edition of the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition, and all participating players will receive the unique in-game title “The Avowed.”
Scott Hartsman, Executive Producer on Rift and Trion’s CCO said:
Establishing this record was a monumental achievement for our development team and community of passionate players, and I couldn’t be more proud. 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.
21,879 marriages — that means 43,758 characters were involved in this 24-hour event. I’d say that’s one hell of an achievement for the community.
