The LOTRO saga continues with legendary battles, higher level caps, and new characters.
The Lord of the Rings has so many epic moments that they're almost impossible to count. Luckily for Lord of the Rings Online users, they get to play through so many of them that the good times never seem to end. Turbine and Warner Bros. love to keep the good time rolling, so they've announced the next digital expansion coming to the free-to-play MMO this fall: Helm's Deep.
"With Helm's Deep, we're bringing the War of the Ring to players on a monumental scale," said Kate Paiz, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online at Turbine. "Our team is thrilled to create another iconic moment in Middle-earth, and put players in the center of the action."
Helm's Deep will launch this fall - no specific date as yet - and will allow players to level all the way up to 95 and explore new lands across Rohan. Players will be able to join characters like Aragorn, Éowyn, and Éomer in order to restore King Théoden to his rightful throne.
Begin your own epic adventure as the Race of Man, Elf, Dwarf, or Hobbit. Based on the books written by J. R. R. Tolkien and not the movies, LOTRO is a closest thing you can get to strolling through Middle-Earth with a solid walking stick in your hand as the road goes ever on and on.
The expansion will also feature the iconic Battle of Helms Deep. Starting at level 10, players can participate in the massive Battle of the Hornburg and earn rewards based on their contribution to the battle.
