Lord of the Rings Online is now free to play


Beginning tomorrow (for former subscribers) and Friday for everyone else, Turbine’s Lord of the Rings Online is free to play. Much in the same way Dungeons & Dragons Online recently went free, LOTRO will use Turbine points to unlock content. While you can purchase Turbine points with real world cash, if LOTRO ends up working like DDO did, it will likely be possible to earn the points in-game. Some dedicated players have worked hard enough in-game to play DDO completely free without ever spending a cent on points. You can check out Lord of the Rings Online on the official site.
