Sounding The Horn: LOTRO Rides To Helm's Deep

Expansion pack of the rings


We all know how the story of Rohan plays out, and in November The Lord Of The Rings Online will allow you to play out that story. The Helm's Deep expansion is a great big piece of work for the MMO, including the famous siege itself, and a raise of the level cap to 95. It's not unpricey, though, with the basic edition ringing in at a hefty £29.99.
