Yesterday's announcement of the mini expansion Siege of Mirkwood
for Lord of the Rings Online
was devoid of a date or a price, which was a deliberate choice on Turbine's
part according to our PAX
interview with the Executive Producer on the game. However, during our forthcoming interview with Jeffrey Steefel
he informed us that fall is in fact the release date and once further testing is finished a more exact date will be announced.
As for the price, Turbine seems to be trying something new with a $19.99 base price
and some special promotional deals leading up to the release of the new expansion. Keep an eye out for our forthcoming interview about all things Siege of Mirkwood
, including the combat and mount changes that we think you're going to find quite intriguing.
