Lord of the Rings Helm’s Deep expansion delayed

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 19 November 2013 01:56 GMT

Following some down time this weekend, the Helm’s Deep expansion for Lord of the Rings has been delayed. The free-to-play MMO went down due to a power outage at its data centre, according to a Facebook post, and as a result Helm’s Deep will be released on November 20, a few days late. Helm’s Deep pre-purchase offers and 100% XP boost and Bounder’s Bounty events have been extended to the same date.
