We’ve already taken the hobbits to Isengard, so the next step for The Lord of the Rings Online is to take the players to hobbits — or, more accurately, The Hobbit, as in the locations featured in the first Lord of the Rings book.

Update 22 will take players to Northern Mirkwood, Dale, Lake-town, and Erebor, The Lonely Mountain. LOTROPlayers has brief previews of all four regions, which are currently on the beta test servers. There’s also a longer preview video which includes a close-up look at the impressively large remains of Smaug — which, let’s be honest, would probably have been picked clean and sold off as souvenirs long ago.
