Free-to-play Lord of the Rings Online dated

Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online is going free-to-play this fall. More specifically, the free-to-play version of the game will launch for PC's in North America and Europe on September 10.

What does free mean? Well, just that -- you'll be able to download the full game and play up to level 50 for no cost. Here's where the opening the wallet comes up -- there's a new Lord of the Rings Online store opening up, where you'll be able to drop dough on expansion pack, premium content, additional character slots, items, and more. It's right in the game, so the game will be able to gently bug you about spending money from time to time. Worse things have happened for giving 50 levels of gameplay handed over to you, I suppose.

Anyone willing to give the new, free Lord of the Rings Online a shot?
