Warner Bros unveiled today The Lord of the Rings Online: Helm’s Deep, the next expansion to its free-to-play massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) that is developed by Turbine. Helm’s Deep will continue the Epic Story into the western plains of Rohan, allow players to take a direct role in the battle for Helm’s Deep and advance the level cap to 95.
Kate Paiz, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine said:
“With Helm’s Deep, we’re bringing the War of the Ring to players on a monumental scale. Our team is thrilled to create another iconic moment in Middle-earth, and put players in the center of the action.”
The Lord of the Rings Online: Helm’s Deep will let you fight to defend Helm’s Deep starting at level 10, as your character enlists as a soldier in the Battle of the Hornburg, the most massive conflict yet in The Lord of the Rings Online.
In addition, this expansion comes with new landscapes across Western Rohan that can be explored, 10 new levels – from 85 to 95 – with new skills and completely updated class specializations, and the continuation of its storyline where players can encounter characters from the books and movies such as Aragorn, Éowyn, and Éomer.
The Lord of the Rings Online: Helm’s Deep is scheduled for release this Autumn.
