This week a new LOTRO developer diary takes us into eastern Rohan, where we get a preview of what is being called “the largest landscape-development project for LOTRO since the initial construction of Eriador.”
Here’s the thing: Rohan is huge. It’s not something you can avoid – you can’t skimp when developing vast, sweeping grasslands. To do it justice, and to keep scale with the rest of the world as we’ve presented it so far, the entire Mark needs to be about six times the size of our average landscape expansion … and that’s not even including pesky details like Fangorn Freaking Forest.
To find out more about the ambitious design of Rohan and what nearly gave one developer a nervous breakdown (hey, it was a lot of work), head over and check out the full developer diary.
