Lotro Free-to-Play model will go live with the release of Volume 3, Book 2 this autumn. Volume 3, Book 2 will continue the Volume 3 Epic Story as the Rangers head south. An all new area, Enedwaith, will be available as well as some exciting new features and many updates to the game including DX11 support. The question is how much will Volume 3 Book 2 cost? Will it be a free content update or will it be, like Mirkwood, another opportunity to pay for new land Enedwaith?
[A-Patience] For VIPs it will be free. Honestly, I don't know which parts, if any at all, will be Store-only for Premium accounts.
