Last month, The Lord of the Rings Online posted several musical selections from its first 10 years with commentary from composer Chance Thomas. Thomas stopped working with the then-Turbine-developed MMO some time ago, though many fans had fond memories of his grand musical scores and stirring themes from the game's first 10 years. For these fans, LotRO now has some exceptionally good news.
Today, during a special live stream, Thomas joined Lord of the Rings Online Community Manager Jerry "Cordovan" Snook to announce that the composer would be returning to score the Mordor expansion.
Apparently, this has been in the works for some time, with Thomas and the LotRO team having agreed a while back to re-partner. The wait -- as should probably be no surprise -- came in the form of waiting on the legal teams and contracts. In fact, the final contract was signed yesterday.
According to the stream, players can expect this score to be different from Thomas' previous work on the game. The last bit of work he did was during the Riders of Rohan expansion and Mordor in general will have a vastly different feel.
