As well as announcing expansion Mines of Moria for Lord of the Ring Online at Connect this morning, Turbine’s confirmed annual updates in a similar fashion to WoW.

“Our focus is to be consistent with what players have already seen us do with the game – continually update content with a lot of new, rich, deep and meaningful content on a regular basis – and that’s something we are going to continue to do,” said Steefel, the game’s executive producer.

“We’re going to have an expansion to the product on an annual basis. So we are going to be keeping up the pace of this game, this game will be evolving, growing and expanding constantly.”

There were still no user figures for the game, but Steefel assured that the game had been very successful in Europe and the US, with Asian launches promised this year.
