Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment unveiled The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan, the latest expansion to the award-winning free-to-play MMORPG developed by Turbine. Riders of Rohan expands the online world of Middle-earth where players join forces to ride into the Plains of Rohan. Riders of Rohan launches in Autumn 2012 with an increased level cap, the vast plains of Rohan including iconic locations such as Amon Hen and Fangorn Forest, the new Mounted Combat system and much more!

New Features:

  • Experience the Riders of Rohan – Join with the Rohirrim and ride across the sprawling Plains of Rohan; witness the breaking of the Fellowship at Amon Hen; forge alliances with the Ents of Fangorn; and aid Éomer, adopted son of Théoden, as he seeks to protect his homeland from the growing Shadow.
  • Introducing Mounted Combat – Ride into Combat atop your loyal War-steed as you defend the people of Rohan from the forces of Isengard and Mordor. Customize your War-steed’s armor and level its skills over time to aid you in mounted defense of King Theoden’s lands. Mount your steed and gather your fellows to fight against Warbands, contingents of roving warg riders that have been scouted all over the Plains of Rohan! It falls to you to head off and defeat this new threat before they over take the land.
  • Advance to level 85 – Continue your legend in the next chapter of The Lord of the Rings Online. Experience new adventures in the epic story, and gain new skills and deeds as you face new challenges on your journey to 85!

    Also in regards to money, Lotro will suck you dry.

      Just play Allods, there’s much more content, smoother game play and epic story lines. Lotro is in complete disrepair right now, the game is fun to play but there is a large gap between the content in from 65-75. When autumn comes around, I suggest playing Lotro because by that time the game will be more fine tuned. Assuming because this “expansion” will come around late next year, we can expect much more from them. Hopefully
