    Warner Bros. has announced that Turbine's The Lord of the Rings Online MMO will relaunch worldwide this autumn as a free-to-play game.

    The move will follow the model established by Turbine's successful relaunch of Dungeons & Dragons Online in the US last year, with a large chunk of the game available for free and extra content, items, features and services on sale via an in-game store.

    Alternatively, you'll be able to pay a VIP subscription for unlimited access to premium content.


    could this be a preview for future console mmorpgs since most online console gamers are already set up to pay for ingame items and would resist a monthly subscription fee, especially if they are already being forced to pay just to play online.
