European Lord of the Rings Online
fans are anxious to get their hands on Siege of Mirkwood
, especially after Codemasters
told them about the great pre-order deals
being offered. Players who purchase the expansion will receive the Harbinger's Cloak, and players purchasing the expansion and the Adventurer's Pack add-on will receive the cloak and an extra mount. So they've heard the story of Mirkwood
, seen the screenshots, watched the trailer, been offered some extra items with their purchase and are just left with the big question: when?
Sam "Satine" Russell, the Director of Community Relations for Codemasters, answered that question recently
when she commented that Siege of Mirkwood "is currently tracking 3rd December for launch"
, two days after the scheduled December 1st release date for Mirkwood
in North America.
It's important to note the phrasing "currently tracking", meaning that this isn't an engraved-in-stone date. However, that date isn't too far off, so we feel pretty good about Satine's statement. We also feel pretty anxious to get our hands on Siege of Mirkwood
, so it's great to have some dates to look forward to!
