Before The Shadow Delay

Standing Stone Games has announced the delay of LotRO's upcoming mini-expansion "Before the Shadow." Players should be able to enjoy the content patch a week after its original release date on November 15.

The Before the Shadow expansion will add two new zones that create an alternative leveling path, an endgame Delving dungeon system akin to Mythic+ from World of Warcraft, quality-of-life improvements, and much more which could be the reason behind its delay. Standing Stone didn't elaborate further in their announcement post on Twitter.

Furthermore, the preview stream by the LotRO devs has been moved to November 11 at noon Eastern Time. However, one of the new zones coming in the expansion, Cordovan, will still be accessible tomorrow for the Extra Life marathon.

In the meantime, you can pre-order the Before the Shadow expansion and jump in right away when it releases on November 15.
