The Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) kicks off the holidays next week with the start of the Yule Festival. Aside from all the festive fun to be had during the event, more ambitious players can snag 14 days of free VIP game access to help bring in the holidays.

From now through January 5th, 2014, you can get the 14 free days of VIP play by signing up for any recurring subscription plan. You can cancel any time during the 14 days, but if you don’t, you will be charged for the subscription that you chose at the end of that time (there's always a catch to these deals folks). The upside, you'll be flagged as Premium even if you cancel, so there is that.

VIP accounts gain access to additional content, features, bigger inventories, a monthly stipend of Turbine Points, and more. You can read all about what's available here. Current VIPs are not eligible for the offer.

Last month LOTRO launched the Helm's Deep expansion, expanding the games content, features, and revamping classes. You can read our review of the Helm's Deep expansion for additional details.

LOTRO's Yule Festival begins on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013 and will run through Tuesday, January 14th, 2014.
