Wow . . . Lord of the Rings Game

MirkwoodLord of the Rings *(Online) came out a while ago :) . Just found out and thought of letting everybody know about it. But their is some new news that is not totally outdated which is the the online version “Siege of Mirkwood” is a new expansion added to the Lord of the Rings, that will come out this fall. The base price wil be $19.99….Sweet!

Though at first sight the game resembles Star/Warcraft where you get to be on the good and evil side, in the battles to come. In summary in the game Lothlorien (It was nice to see that they kept the places name from the book written by Tolkien) is about to be invaded by the evil Nazgul who has already taken over Southern Mirkwood, and the players can join the elves to fight Nazgul and save Lothlorien.

New Features added:

  • Skirmish system where the party’s level and size can be modified to (1, 3, 6 and 12-person).
  • Different difficulty levels to choose from
  • Creating a soldier as your partner, customize their appearance and their role in the battle
  • Auto attack can now be interrupted, during action
  • create and develop the weapons of heros
