TurbineIf you are one of the many who doubted the primacy of the free-to-play business model for online games, here's big news for you: Turbine, the publisher of games such as Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online, will release free-to-play games that offer premium content from a cash shop. In fact, this summer, Dungeons & Dragons Online will transition into a free-to-play game.
Dungeons & Dragons Online will become Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited, a version of the game that is already in beta testing. Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited is, essentially, the next major content update for Dungeons & Dragons Online as well as transitioning the game to a free-to-play model.

The update will raise the level cap and add plenty of new content (including a new 12-person raid and improvements to combat.

Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited will be free to download and play, and will be supported by a cash shop that will sell "hundreds of convenience items as well as premium dungeon packs, additional character slots, hirelings (hired muscle), potions, character customization and more." Additionally, players will be able to subscribe to the game, gaining access to every premium adventure pack, "priority server access, 10 character slots, a shared bank slot, and a monthly allotment of 500 Turbine Points to spend in the new DDO Store."
