All that is gold does not glitter -- unless you happen to live in Europe. As of this week, Lord of the Rings Online:
Gold Edition is now available across Europe, but it's been confirmed as exclusive to the region.
The Gold Edition contains all the bells & whistles you'd expect: a Book 11
version of the game with a 45 day subscription, three unique in-game items for use in the Book 11 Housing
, and a unique in-game mount -- the Bree Horse.
But what's slightly unusual is that you can use the new mount a full ten levels earlier than you gain the Riding trait in LotRO
, without paying a dime for it. Admittedly, the Bree Horse comes with different stats -- but it still must be a little vexing to those outside of Europe.
Is the Gold Edition going to be enough to convince you to pick up LotRO
? Or if you're elsewhere in the world, do you wish this had got a release where you live?Further details about the Gold Edition can be found in the recent LotRO devchat.
