LOTRO: Warner und Turbine stellen RIDERS OF ROHAN vor

Die nächs­te Erwei­te­rung für Tur­bi­nes MMO HERR DER RINGE ONLINE wird im Herbst 2012 erschei­nen und trägt den Titel RIDERS OF ROHAN. Damit kommt man Kun­den­wün­schen nach, denn schon lan­ge äußern sich die Spie­ler, dass das Rei­ter­volk Ein­gang in LOTRO fin­den möge.

Neben den Tat­sa­chen, dass die maxi­mal mög­li­che Stu­fe auf 85 ange­ho­ben wird und dass selbst­ver­ständ­lich hau­fen­wei­se neue Ques­ten und Gegen­den ins Spiel gepatched wer­den (dar­un­ter bei­spiels­wei­se Amon Hen und der Wald von Fang­orn) ist eine der inter­es­san­tes­ten ange­kün­dig­ten Neue­run­gen sicher­lich der berit­te­ne Kampf! Den Reit­tie­re sol­len man sowohl Rüs­tung anle­gen, wie auch deren Kampf­fä­hig­kei­ten über Skills trai­nie­ren kön­nen.

Laut Anga­ben der Pres­se­mel­dung wird man in der Lage sein, mit­zu­ver­fol­gen, wie die Gemein­schaft des Rings bei Anon Hen zer­bricht – und man wird zusam­men mit Theo­dens Adop­tiv­sohn Éomer an der Sei­te der Ents gegen die dräu­en­den Schat­ten kämp­fen kön­nen.

Ein Preis für die Erwei­te­rung wur­de noch nicht bekannt gege­ben.
