WiC Out 29th of June?

Friday, April 27th, 2007

Due to an interview in PCGZine, a new release date for WiC has emerged. I was originally told by Andy from Sierra that the game would be out towards the end of the year, in time for Christmas. It now appears that it will be out on the 29th of June. Which means that we could expect an open beta really soon.

You can Download the latest PCGZine (at present it is the one with the interview) via my affliate link below.

Lord Of The Rings Online: Shadows Of Angmar Free Till April 24

Saturday, April 7th, 2007

The MMORPG based off The of The Rings story, will be free to play until April the 24th. After that you will have to (like most MMORPG’s) pay to play.

However, you will not be able to level up beyond level 15 during the world tour (time you can play for free). But its something for nothing so you can’t really complain.

If you don’t know what LORTO is all about then I suggest you read Internet Gamers.org’s post on their time with the game.

I think it’s quite a good marketing strategy letting you play for free for a few weeks. I guess that their idea behind it is that, if you start playing the game then like most MMORPGS you will get hooked and thus want to continue playing the game, therefore signing up and paying for it.
