  • Welcome to World Content Systems 101

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with a page written by Matt Elliot who tells us about the world content we can expect to find in Middle-earth.

    Most MMOs are rife with numerous content and game systems that help bring their particular world together, making it feel more immersive and alive. Some of these systems may not be noticeable on the surface at first, but after a bit of digging and exploring, a player can discover a fortune in gameplay. The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ is no different. Our goal is to not only provide an epic story spanning across the lands of Eriador, but also support that story – and our world as a whole – with fun and interesting World Content Systems.

  • Exploring Middle-earth: Archet

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with another installment of the series, Exploring Middle-earth. Archet is today's destination...

    The lack of any real authority and the peaceful nature of Archet's people have recently drawn the attentions of a band of brigands known as the Blackwolds, though rumour has it that the Blackwolds have much darker goals than terrifying common folk and farmers. To counter this threat, a retired sellsword by the name of Captain Brackenbrook has begun organizing the townsfolk into a makeshift garrison to repel the advances of the brigands.

    More on this area is just a click away. Have you visted our LOTRO Ten Ton Hammer Community site lately? Don't miss out on all the latest news and information. Let us know what you think about this and all your favorite MMOs in our new Ten Ton Hammer Forums today!

  • Transcripts Available

    Stratics has posted the transcripts from their House of Commons chat with the devlopers of Lord of the Rings Online.

    Sprite - *Crowser* What is your estimated time frame til an open beta will occur?
    LOTRO_Patience - We expect to be starting open beta fairly "soon," which of course is a relative term :D

    Sprite - *Alkales* : Is Turbine planning on doing anything to make moral unique, rather then just a word substitute for hit points? For example: certain areas like the old forest decrease your moral simply because you're in the area, or perhaps depending on what type foe your facing in combat.
