Lord Of The Rings Euro On The Move

Lord Of The Rings Online is to be entirely taken over by Turbine, Eurogamer reports. Until now the European servers have been in the hands of Codemasters, who seem to cling on to existence via their Codies Online Gaming hosting MMOs. But from the 1st June, the developers will be operating all their servers worldwide. Why tell you? Because if you're a player you're going to need to migrate your account across to the new owners. All the servers will remain, so there's no cause for disruption. But you will need to make the account move, which will of course be free. There's an FAQ for those who have further questions about the whole business. LOTRO is of course now free to play, which makes the need to re-enter your billing details the sort of thing that makes my brain hurt.
