    Turbine, inc, the company behind the MMORPG titled "The Lord Of The Rings Online" lifted the NDA on the developer side of the game and rumors were confirmed that the company has a Macintosh client for TLOTRO in beta possibly to be released on October 15th with the games next expansion set titled "Riders of Rohan". It's a native client according to devs and not a wonky cider/wine port.

    The game was unofficially playable without bootcamp through wrappers made by fans of the game.

    It sure is great to see more MMO's coming to the Mac, besides World of Warcraft.

    especially since CoH/CoV is being shut down... lose 1 on Mac, gain another...

    good news! Its free to play at first isnt it?
    i tried the PC demo a year or so ago but playing it just made me want to play WoW instead since i was used to the WoW controlls/UI.

    From what I've read it's F2P all the way through. I'm sure restrictions apply here and there and you'd have to grind a lot more but it doesn't seem to ave a F2P level cap.
