Rise of Isengard expansion launches for LOTRO

By Stephany Nunneley, Tuesday, 27 September 2011 18:05 GMT

In a bid to possess what little remains of the free time I devote to the game already, Turbine has launched its Rise of Isengard expansion for Lord of the Rings Online. As a matter of fact, after finally being able to get into the game yesterday after biting my nails to nubs for three hours, I played it until 2am this morning. Yes, the horses were met with a grumpy lady with buckets of oats when breakfast rolled around this morning. At least they don’t hold grudges unlike human beings. You can check out the launch trailer for the expansion below, courtesy of GameFront. While you are over there, check out the site’s preview of the content here.
