LotRO goes F2P

After announcing the switch earlier this year, it has finally happened, allowing players to join the epic MMORPG adventure for free.

Whilst some are commenting on this move as a desperate effort to steal players from World Of Warcraft, Turbine say that this isn't the case, merely stating that it's a new business model that follows what happened with Dungeons and Dragons Online.

Blizzard have also commented on going free to play, but haven't announced any thing yet.

For those who were previously a premium player and would still like to remain paying for LotRO, then fear not; there's a premium option that allows players to have certain advantages such as larger inventories, specific gear and certain classes - Amongst other things.
