Rise of Isengard dev diary and screens released

By Stephany Nunneley, Wednesday, 21 September 2011 20:58 GMT

Turbine has released a new developer diary for Lord of the Rings Online, with the firm’s senior producer Aaron Campbell discussing the Tower of Orthanc, and how the landscape around it has changed since Saruman starting breeding Uruk-hai. Apparently the Uruks bred by Sauron needed improvement in Saruman’s eyes, and now they are an even more formidable force to the reckoned with. The dev diary discusses the past, present, and the future of the area around Isengard, and you’ll be pleased to know Wormtounge shows up in this diary. Check it out below, along with the screens.

Rise of Isengard hits on September 27.
