Return to Lord of the Rings Online, Get Free Week

By Chad Awkerman

December 15, 2009

Not too long ago Turbine offered a free week to former players who might be interested in returning to their recreation of Tolkein’s world.  Now they’re at it again.  If you’ve played before, like myself, and may be interested in what changes and updates have come along since you last signed on, you can now give it a shot for free between December 17 and 21.  If you don’t mind all the updating that may come along with it, why not give it a shot?  Hey, it’s free game time!

Here’s a bullet list of things they really want  you to know about those five free days of play and beyond.

  • You get a 10% experience bonus, which stacks on top of rested experience.  Not too shabby!
  • You can play your old characters, so there is no need to level up from the start again.
  • You can experience some of the new digital expansion content – Siege of Mirkwood.
  • After those five days, if you feel like continuing to play, you can subscribe for $9.99 per month (offer only good for former players).

If you need to download the Lord of the Rings Online client again, you can do so here.  Happy Hobbit hunting!  Er, wait…that’s not right…
