    Bad news wannabe Ring-bearers in Europe - the free to play version of Lord of the Rings Online has been delayed pending bug fixes.

    The news broke on the official LOTRO forums a couple of days ago, with no specific reason given other than "more time" being needed, and no details on exactly how long the delay will be.

    The US free to play version of LOTRO is still scheduled to go live today, so those of you lucky enough to live stateside can start exploring Middle Earth for free as soon as you can download the 10GB+ client.

    For more information and updates, keep an eye on the official sticky forum post here.

    Currently updating my lifetime/vip account client.

    I haven't played for almost a year though, I was never able to keep playing MMO's, finish them in any sense. I hope I can some how do that now lol It was always free for me anyways lol
