    divider

    During our April 20th interview with Aaron Campbell and Adam Mersky, the fellas had a lot to discuss. As the Producer for the Lord of the Rings Online and the Executive Director of Communications for Turbine, Inc. (respectively), their first order of business was to discuss the 4th anniversary of the game. That discussion is detailed Here.

    But they also wanted everyone to know that they don't intend to rest on their laurels and coast on the success of Update 2: Echoes of the Dead, released on March 21st. They're keeping the ball rolling with another batch of content, Update 3, which is scheduled to land at the end of May. So what can we expect from this as-yet-unnamed update? Lots, apparently.

    LotRO's 4th Anniversary: An Interview with Aaron and Adam

    With the Spring Festival having just ended, the Free People continue to celebrate their victories against the forces of shadow for the fourth anniversary of the Lord of the Rings Online.  And the devs have reason to celebrate as well - we got Aaron Campbell, Producer of LotRO, and Adam Mersky, Executive Director of Communications at Turbine, Inc., on the phone to talk about the festivities and about what's coming up for the game. In regards to the 4th anniversary of LotRO, Adam said, "It's been a killer 4 years for us and we're real happy to have made it to this milestone, as not many games have. Ironically, LotRO is still the baby in our stable, as we have a title that's turning 12 this year and a title that's just turned 5, but nonetheless we're still proud to be 4."
