This week has seen a rash of new videos and interviews regarding the new expansion for The Lord of the Rings Online. Riders of Rohan will release this fall and players are already jumping at the bit to get their hands on pre-order Keys and Beta Keys.
Turbine has released a video showcasing one of the more highly anticipated updates to the game: Mounted Combat.
While the above video is nothing more than a mash-up of gameplay showcasing the many types of mounted combat, it is nonetheless exciting to see Loremasters, Hunters, and Champions alike all having unique skills to take down your foe. Also, the video subtly highlights the fact you can customize the look of your Warmount to make it more to your liking.
On Wednesday, Turbine and MMORPG.com Live-streamed the Video game News Site’s Hands on Demo of Riders of Rohan. The video is about an hour long and definitely worth a look if you are interested in a more in-depth look at the new expansion.
How games have moved on, I remember playing text based role-playing games on a ZX Spectrum many moons ago.
