Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan screenshots landed in our inbox this morning, and we thought we’d share them with you. Each shows new landscape creatures and troops from the three major factions that are running rampant over the plains of Rohan: the White Hand, Mordor and the Easterlings.

Uruk-hai, Goblins, and the men of Rhûn are all hellbent on retrieving the One Ring for Saruman the Betrayer or Sauron – depending on which side they are fighting on at the time.

You’ll note some sport the emblem of the White Hand, while other sport the Great Eye.

All are evil and must be destroyed so it doesn’t matter which flag they are flying, so to speak.

Riders of Rohan will launch on October 15 and a Mac client is rumored to launch alongside the expansion.
