Turbine Entertainment has a new expansion pack coming out for Lord of the Rings Online in the Riders of Rohan pack. This trailer actually shows off some of the gameplay and the plains of Rohan, plus some of the creatures that players will be battling in there.
The new Riders of Rohan pack introduces Rohan, which Turbine says will be three-times larger than Moria. Players can join up with the Rohirrim and ride into combat atop a war-steed. The steeds will be customizable with armor and skill leveling taking the fight to Isengard, Mordor and roving Warbands.
A new storyline has been introduced for the new pack where players can “witness the breaking of the Fellowship at Amon Hen; forge alliances with the Ents of Fangorn; and aid Eomer, nephew of Theoden, as he seeks to protect his homeland from the growing Shadow.” With the storyline there’s also going to be a new level cap of 85, a number of new quests, gear, deeds and favors to earn.
The Riders of Rohan pack for LOTRO will be out on September 5.
