Mirkwood Ready To Be Sieged

Why can't we just get along with the giant monsters?

Lord of the Rings Online expansion The Siege of Mirkwood is now online. Are you already there? Or planning to return? I must confess to having had no real experience of LOTRO, beyond a disastrous pre-release event where I was abandoned in some weird place with nothing to do for 45 minutes before quitting in confusion. I’m assured this isn’t how the game works, but instead it’s a deep, involved and rather musical MMO. And now it’s even bigger with this new chunk of game. There’s a launch trailer below to get you in the mood.

Lots more details can be found in Alec’s interview with Turbine producer Jeffrey Steefel over here. Meanwhile, here’s a quick rundown of what’s included in the $20 expansion:

– Join the elves of Lothlórien in war against Sauron among the ancient ruins, spider-haunted canyons, and foul bogs of Mirkwood
– Discover hundreds of challenging quests in this new region
– Advance your hero to level 65, and take the power of your Legendary Items to level 70
– Create and lead your own customizable soldier in the new Skirmish system
– Infiltrate the Dungeons of Dol Guldur, the Deadly Sword-halls, and the Savage Warg-pens
– Experience action like never before with new enhanced combat responsiveness
– Risk the most challenging 12-person raid ever devised against the Nazgul Lord, Lieutenant of Dol Guldur!
