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.

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.

Turbine has released a developer diary for Lord of the Rings Online’s Rise of Isengard expansion. It has the developers chatting about what went into designing the Gap of Rohan. It is posted below along with new screenshots from the game. Honestly, I have to say, the video clips of the game in it do not do it justice. It is a rather gorgeous game.

Turbine has releases some screens from the LotRO fall expansion, Rise of Isengard, showing off the area of Dunland located in the foothills of the southern Misty Mountains. It is infested with Dunland Clans, rugged warriors tempted by “the dark promise of power,” and probably other stuff you will want to slash with your sword more than once. Rise of Isengard launches on September 27, which we think of as a very nice birthday present from Turbine. [art]
