Lord of the Rings Online to Go Free
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that Turbine will unveil a major update to The Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) making the game free-to-play for everyone!
The update will launch this fall across North America and Europe (with Codemasters operating the game free-to-play in Europe) and will introduce Turbine’s innovative new pricing model to the game, as well as extending the award-winning story. Players interested in getting a sneak peak can sign up for a chance to participate in the Beta program, which begins June 16th, at www.LOTRO.com.
This approach to the game definitely intrigues me--I'll definitely give it another shot, as I've never been one to commit to a $15/mo plan for a single game.
