Lord of the Rings Online has gone Free to Play
It's an interesting model for an online game and seems to be working really well for Turbine's other MMO, Dungeons and Dragons Online.
A few of us have been playing it over the weekend and probably gotten a significant number of hours out of it for free. Of course, it's an MMO and the first hit's free :P We'll see if we end up spending money on it after we reach the end of the free sections of the game . . . personally, I'm enjoying it and don't mind throwing a little cash their way for the privilege of having played a few hour's worth of fun with some mates.
It'll be interesting to see how many other games go for this kind of model . . . try it for free, but if you really want to get into the meat of it, it costs . . .
