Well I was wondering with the whole free to play thing if a new expansion would come out soon or not and I got my answer. Lord of the Rings online: Rise of Isengard was announced by Turbine last week and will be adding a few new things to the free to play game. Here’s the list they gave so far.
Experience the Rise of Isengard – The Epic Story continues as the Grey Company makes its way south into Dunland, but troubles arise as their road takes them into lands where Dunlending forces, marshaled by the Wizard Saruman, prepare for war. The Rangers must seek new allies and face dangerous new foes, chief among them the traitor Saruman, whose web of intrigue threatens to endanger your quest, your friends, and your life.
Increased Level Cap — Players will be able advance their characters up to level 70, gaining access to new traits, virtues, skills and class quests.
Expanded Monster Play – LOTRO’s monster play system will get a major revamp including opening up the feature to all players, changes to monster player skills and advancement and a brand new region for players to battle for or against the forces of evil.
Now if you’ve played Lord of the Rings online you know that free to play isn’t really 100% free to play so I imagine that the area will be free but you will have to buy the quest packs or something. Anyways I’m looking forward to Lord of the Rings online: Rise of Isengard expansion and hope to see more from Turbine soon.
