Lord of the Rings Online Helm’s Deep expansion is expected to go live on November 18, 2013. If you pre-order Helm’s Deep you can get a few special items to use in the game. Some of the items you will receive immediately (points, titles, quest slots) and some not till the expansion is live.
This expansion is going to be different from any of the others too. Helm’s Deep is an epic defense that will take everyone working together in order to win. So as soon as your character reaches level 10 they can go help!
I think this is going to be really fun. I’ve been playing LOTRO a bit more often lately. Got to have my characters ready to go! It is still just as much fun as it was when I started.
Lord of the Rings Online is a Free To Play game too. You can download and start playing totally free. There are ways to earn points in the game (such as finishing deeds) and you can spend those points in the store or save them to buy special items (quest packs, horses, buffs). It is actually possible to play the game from start to finish without spending any money at all…if you want to.
Some folks do that. Many do spend money to buy extra points (they are in a hurry!) or to pay for expansions. It is entirely up to you.
It is lots of fun and if you have a bit of free time…or just need some time where you can smack something (goblins!) without getting thrown in jail….and let of some steam….come join us!
