Game Lord of the Rings Online

With endless plains, towering mountain ranges, and a plethora of cities ripe with character, Middle-earth just begs to be explored. Turbine’s Lord of the Rings Online grants players that opportunity. Released in 2007, the MMORPG was the first use of the license that came close to capturing the scale of the sprawling fantasy world, and it did so with with bravado. There are standard fetch quests and the like, but LOTRO succeeds when it’s telling engrossing stories tangential to the main plot. Middle-earth is a nuanced place, and Turbine’s MMO conveys that tenfold.

The Lord of the Rings Online is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) for Microsoft Windows and OS X set in a fantasy universe based upon J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth writings. It took place during the time period of The Lord of the Rings. It was developed and maintained by Turbine after Jeffrey Anderson secured the rights from Vivendi.[2]

It launched in North America, Australia, Japan, and Europe on April 24, 2007. Originally subscription-based, it is free-to-play, with a paid VIP subscription available that provides players various perks. Four of the more prominent are access to all game regions and content not part of an expansion pack, the ability to swiftly travel between major towns, the removal of the currency cap that would otherwise hamper the economic freedom of a player, and the ability to send currency through the mail system, and make cash-on-delivery payments.

In 2010, the NPD Group reported that the game was “the third most played massively multiplayer role-playing game” with Turbine citing their free-to-play model as the reason for the growing subscriber base.

 

On December 19, 2016, it was announced that with immediate effect Lord of the Rings Online would be developed and maintained by Standing Stone Games, a newly formed independent game studio made up of the groups that have been working on Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online under Turbine Inc. before.
