Lord of the Rings Online Goes Free To Play In September
Good news for fans of Turbine’s Lord of the Rings Online.
The conversion from subscription service to free-to-play game is coming September 10th.
Like Dungeons & Dragons Online, LOTRO will allow players to play completely for free, but also offers micro-transactions to purchase new character types and expansions to the game. Players can still sign up for a subscription service that grants them more character slots per server and a stipend of points for use in the Turbine Store each month.
Founders and Lifetime Subscription holders get a few more bonuses but are still guaranteed they will not have to spend any additional money to play the game. You can read all about the conversion process in Ron’s Behind-the-scenes feature from E3.
