Lord of the Rings Online - Siege of Mirkwood Live Preview

Updated Wed, Oct 28, 2009 by Medawky

The latest chapter in the lore rich fantasy MMOG Lord of the Rings Online is less than two months away, and open beta is just around the corner. Curiosities are running high in the LotRO community and Ten Ton Hammer has been granted a live look at the fresh new content and we want to share! Join Medawky as he embarks into Siege of Mirkwood with Live Producer Aaron Campbell of Turbine, delving into the fabled forest and uncovering what the future has in store for this epic franchise.

Even though open beta is still a couple of weeks out it is fairly obvious that the bulk of the content is in place for the upcoming expansion. With many sites dubbing this a “mini-expansion”, I was surprised and delighted by the overall depth and scope of this newest installment to the franchise. With only close to two hours of hands on time I can already tell you that the aforementioned branding of Siege of Mirkwood is a complete misnomer, this is no mini-expansion but rather a vast enhancement that will add a whole new layer of playability to the game.
