Turbine has finally announced the release date for The Lord of The Rings Online: Helm’s Deep expansion. Set to go live on November 18th, the expansion will continue the MMO’s tradition of expanding the Epic Story. This time players will take front and center stage as they embark into the western plains of Rohan to battle for Helm’s Deep. On the way, players can expect to encounter famous characters and locations including Aragorn and the infamous fortress of the Hornburg.
The expansion which increases the level cap to 95, will also add new skills and completely updated class specializations. Mounted combat, which was introduced in the Riders of Rohan expansion, will also see a return.
The majority of The Lord of The Rings Online expansions must be purchased and Helm’s Deep is no exception. However, starting today Turbine has laid out several pre-purchase offers to entice players with more than just the baseline expansion. The pre-order packs range from $39.99 for the base edition to $59.99 for premium. Each bundle comes with an allotment of Turbine points, assorted cosmetic armors, unique mount, titles and experience boosts.
