[News] [PC]

Well at least until 2014 or so and really do we even know if the world will last that long? According to the Mayans, what? I'm digressing again? Fine. For those of you who have never come into contact with books, cartoons, television or anything remotely creative in the last 60 years, LOTR stands for Lord of the Rings a trilogy of books from, what? They know about J.R.R. Tolkien?

OK, so read on for some interesting information about the longevity of the game portion of his legacy. 

Turbine, Inc. announced today that in the wake of the global success of The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, it has reached an agreement with Tolkien Enterprises to extend it’s license to develop Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Games (MMORPG) based on The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien to 2014 with additional options to extend the rights until 2017.

The Lord of the Rings Online delivers an interactive experience brimming with life and filled with the familiar people, places and monsters from the most beloved fantasy adventure of all time. From the quaint surroundings of the Shire to Angmar, the vile kingdom of the Witch-king, players will experience the world of Middle-earth as never before. The Lord of the Rings Online is available in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. For more information, please visit www.lotro.com.

Long Live Frodo!

I played this when it first came out - and while it had some interesting innovations, it just didn't hook me. I'm told there have been many patches and improvements since then, so maybe I should give it another chance...
