Lord of the Rings Online

Post by Bevan »

No real surprise as Turbine seem to have formed a bit of a partnership with Codemasters lately. I haven't looked into it yet, but it likely means the continuation of regionalised accounts, so Euro clients won't be able to connect to US servers etc. As much as that annoys me, one thing in Turbine/Codemasters favour though is that there are no attempts to stop Euro players purchasing a copy of the US client and registering an account - a compromise at least :)

'Turbine Inc. have signed Codemasters Online Gaming to be the European publishers, distributors and service providers for The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™; (LOTRO) the first and only massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) based on the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien.'

Official Euro website linked below, though no real info there yet.

Still, there was a huge Middle earth following especially from the PnP side of it who were genuinely mortified when the game was cancelled last year. Lets hope that they remain fairly true to system as they have with D&D online. we can but wait and see..... Hopefully they will be Beta testing when I get back from Iraq at the end of the year :ramboface: :birdman: [-o<
