Lord of the Rings Online: Going Free to Play

Lord of the Rings Online: Going Free to Play - Lord of the Rings Online - MMORPG.com

Lord of the Rings Online is one of the more popular subscription-based MMOs on the 'Net today. Recently, however, Turbine announced that LOTRO will be moving to a free to play model beginning this fall. MMORPG.com's Garrett Fuller caught up with Turbine to talk about the changes and how they will change the game

Lord of the Rings Online will offer the epic storyline for free up to the Mines of Moria expansion. The in game shop expands from there and players will be able to buy content packs. Once you purchase a pack, every character on the account will have access. Turbine is also very serious that the Free to Play model is not a Pay to Win model. They sell no gear in the game shop and nothing that can disrupt the balance of the game.

Read the rest of Garrett's interview with Turbine.
