Lord of the Rings Online: Free!?
Coming this fall, you’ll get to play this already setup, running and burgeoning MMO. Yes, for free. Whats the catch you ask? Well, I’m hard pressed to find one, since I don’t actually know much about the gameworld and the system, but hey, why the hell NOT give it a try?
You’ll get to play for free all the way up to level 50, after that, it looks like your standard subscription fee’s apply. It looks like to make up for the fact that you get that many levels for free, They are opening up a new LOTR Store, thousands of convenience items as well as expansion packs, premium content, additional character slots, potions, character customization, you get the gist of it.
Honestly, I like this concept, I get to play a game that is already established, has a good base of subscribers and if I want to get more in debt with the world, I can spend some money on customization. It’s a bold move to make, but with World of Warcraft reigning supreme for the foreseeable future you have to adapt. I give the makers of Lord of the Rings Online a tip of the hat for doing this, and I wish them the best. I know I’ll be giving the game a try in the Fall when this releases, that is, if I have an internet connection at home by then…
