Cosmic Rift was a 2D online-only multiplayer space action shooter similar to SubSpace where you take command of one of thirteen star fighter crafts of varying strengths and unique weaponry and wage war with hundreds of other players. It consists of different gaming zones each with their own game modes and rules. Next to solo and team matches, there was also support for Capture the Flag-type of games, a soccer variant, and a RPG-inspired mode where money is earned by gathering minerals, collected by destroying ships. The game was included in Sony Online Entertainmen's "The Station" games lineup.
