Lord of the Rings Online officially turns five today, even though the MMO has been celebrating the fact since last week. To celebrate even further, Turbine has released a video which takes a look back over the years at the game’s development, change and the various areas of exploration. The anniversary festivities can still be participated in until April 30, and the header image was captured last night during the fireworks launch quest in Bree on the Nimrodel server. There’s lots and lots of fireworks this time out, and starting today, you will earn double XP on monster kills. Also, if you are running low on points, itching for the Mithril Edition of the game, or would like to win a lifetime sub, hit up GameFront to figure out how to go about this.
