TERA Going Free-to-Play Next Month

The TERA Website has news that En Masse Entertainment's MMORPG is going free-to-play next month (thanks Massively). This FAQ has all the details, and here's a bit:

TERA will be free.

No level, time, or content restrictions.

Our philosophy is to add to what we already offer instead of restricting existing content. We've added an in-game shop where players can choose to buy costumes, mounts, and consumables, but the core of the game will be 100% free.

Hell, even LOTRO went F2P, even though it does have the IP advantage.

Although the LOTR IP is a very valuable resource, I think it lacks the power that WoW and FFXI have in the video game space. I'm hard pressed to even think of any Non-MUD LOTR games that existed before the movies got made.

I'm going to guess that the reason LOTR didn't do as well in terms of pure IP is that the IP didn't originate in the video game space and its main creator is dead so expansion of that IP is a daunting challenge.
