Getting up close with LOTRO fall expansion & new sprint content

By Updated on

The developer behind Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine, has recently revealed plans to bring a new expansion to Riders of Rohan this fall, today we will take a look at the many new features and changes it will bring – it has to be said that LOTRO fans will be very excited by what’s coming their way.

There’s still a lot we don’t know about this expansion such as an exact release date, its name and how much it will cost, however we do have lots of more interesting things to tell you about. Apparently this will be the largest new zone which Turbine has ever been brought to the game and it will cover the east side of the map – to give you an idea of the size of the landscape we are told it will be twice the size of Moria.

When playing the expansion you will be able to visit the Amom Hen and the Eaves of Fangorn, you will also be able to take advantage of mounted combat, a raised level cap and a new war horse. The war horse is especially designed for combat, it will be able to trample down the enemy and there’s also mention of Helm’s deep, mounted Warbands and warg riders.

As you can see there’s a lot coming in the fall expansion, but that’s not all! Turbine’s executive producer, Kate Paiz, has revealed that quite a substantial update will also be coming to the game this spring. This update will bring a new region called Great River which is located just south of Lothlorien, you can find out more about new content arriving this Sprint here.
