The Siege of Mirkwood expansion for Lord of the Rings Online has gone live.

Time to saddle up your elf, human or dwarf (hobbits don’t count) and venture forth past Lothlorien into the foreboding forest of Mirkwood and smash Sauron’s army to bits. Huzzah!

Those who play, should check out all the development diaries and patch notes while the game updates, because there’s quite a few changes, and a really awesome new mount system.

There’s also a launch trailer posted below, courtesy of FileFront.
