    Update 3: Lost Legends of Eriador - a LotRO Play Session with the Devs


    Everybody likes new stuff. We like new stuff even when the "old stuff" is really not that old. This goes as much for the Lord of the Rings Online as for anything else. Update 2: Echoes of the Dead hasn't been out that long, and Turbine is already geared up and ready to launch Update 3: Lost Legends of Eriador near the end of May.

    North American players will see this new content on May 23, and the EU crowd can expect to see it when the European operations are migrated to Turbine's new Global Service after June 1, when the Global Service goes live. And while Update 3 is not as massive as Update 2 was, it's still pretty sweet, and the devs were eager to show off their handiwork in a hectic playsession.

Aaron Campbell, Producer for the Lord of the Rings Online, and Adam Mersky, Director of Communications for Turbine, gave us a guided tour of the new content being delivered with Update 2: Echoes of the Dead, which is scheduled to go live on March 21st.

    Aaron acted as our tour guide, powering us through some of the new instances and explaining some of the new features as we went. Our first stop was the Glacier Fortress, a new instance set in Forochel.
