CheatCC says - The Lord of the Rings Online has had an interesting history as a game. It began as a monthly subscription-based MMO, but about three years into the project, it went free-to-play. The surprising thing about this transition is that it has worked very well: the world of LotRO rings no less true to hardcore Lord of the Rings fans than it did before this transition. Now, Turbine is expanding this game world toward the tower of Isengard, the fortress of the wizard Saruman. I got to spend some time with the folks at Turbine and get an early peek at this brand new content.
