The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar Hands-on

IGN has been busy getting hands on time with several upcoming games. Today, the posted a preview of Lord of the Rings Online. Keep reading to see what they thought of their time in Middle-earth.

The game begins, as all others do, by creating a character. Males and females of the humans, elves and hobbits can be chosen along with a male dwarf. I guess females with beards aren't that appealing. After picking a race and gender a racial intro cut shows to give a little bit of background on that particular entry to set the stage for events to come.

Those unfamiliar with the title up to now should know that it takes place during the events of The Lord of the Rings trilogy of books. This simple fact opens up a lot of questions. Will we get to see the fellowship traveling around? Will we play a role in the events leading up to Frodo dropping the ring into the fire pits of Mount Doom?

Get clicking to find out what answers they were able to find. Stop by our LOTRO Ten Ton Hammer Community today and get up to date with all the latest news and information!
