Now Available – Update 14: Paths of the Dead – Play for Free!

Update 14: Paths of the Dead
The Epic Story Continues!
Darkness lies in the East. As the army of Rohan musters to join the forces of Gondor, Aragorn forges ahead through the Paths of the Dead. Follow his path to seek justice and stability for the Realms of Men. As the leaders in Western Gondor answer the call of Gondor and head east, a dark force takes advantage of their absence. Adventure through 5 new levels of Epic Story and beautiful landscapes as you put your legend to the test!

3 New Regions

Blackroot Vale
Mountain towns hold strong after the Army of the Dead has marched through the Vale. Threats from the mountains and from the valley remain. Is there something at work here? Or is this merely the wilds acting amiss? These people need your help.

Lamedon
Farming villages lay quiet in the deep valleys on your path to Dol Amroth. Working their land has made them blind to the dangers that have seized their shores. Corsairs have made their way north and now, more than ever, pose a real threat to the people in this region. Can you help them stem the tide?

Belfalas
The Ocean lies near. The abandoned Elven village of Edhellond awaits your gaze and Dol Amroth, the stronghold in this area, awaits your sword. The beaches stir as ships dock, bringing more Corsairs ashore. The air in Dol Amroth, however, is calm. Few know what is truly upon them.

Essence System
New slotted equipment can be found throughout Middle-earth! Upgrade these armor pieces with Essences that hold great power. Find Essences, or craft them using elements you find in your travels!

I will start off with a few good points as to why i would recommend this game (Only slightly) to people who enjoy mmos with a already created universe. The game does a pretty good job at recreating the lotr universe of Middle-Earth or at least it did at one point. For you see it would seem the worlds are almost empty, If you are thinking of just playing cusually then get ready to grind like hell to get the turpine points to buy most of the items you need in-game. For example you need turpine points to buy the riding skill early game and alot of the other good cosmetic items, but dont get me wrong i like how you can actually get the coins with out having to pay real money it will just take a long time to get them. With the Semi pay-to-win out of the way there is the problem of the servers drying up, beacuse if you are wanting to get into this game now unless you are starting with someone get ready to walk the halls alone. There are a good amount of pros and cons to cover aslso

-Pros
-well crafted maps
-decent gaming community
-not entirely pay-to-win
-story with an interesting twist
-crafting is rather good

-Cons
-close to empty servers
-lots of grinding for "turbine points"
-some glitches (though what games don't)
-armour doesn't have the greatest apeal in the looks

The lists can go on for both but that is always up to the indivual person, because i have found you can't always go off of reviews you have to figure out if you like the game yourself. That being said i wrote this just to educate the people who might want to start playing this game and hopefully turbine might see this and lay off the pay-to-win a little but. So all in all it is rather fun, i guess i might have something to do with my love for Lotr.

LotRO is a free-to-play (f2p) game that is set in the world of Middle-earth which was created by the Father of Modern Fantasy himself, J.R.R Tolkien. LotRO (Lord of the Rings Online) is as it's name suggests - it is based around the time of the Lord of the Rings and features a lot of the War of the Ring. First of all, let me talk about races and classes. There are four races which are Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits and the Race of Men which you get to decide on when your making your own character. Then there are the nine classes: Burglar, Captain, Champion, Hunter, Guardian, Lore-master, Minstrel, Rune-keeper and Warden (the last two you need to pay with turbine points or get via Mines of Moria expansion though). The game throws you into the tutorial (not litterally :P) and into it's main storyline.

Depending on what race you choose you are in the tutorial (Dwarves and Elves go to Thorin's Halls, Men and Hobbits go to Archet). And once you complete the tutorial, it is pretty much a free world for you. You can craft on LotRO (litterally some players - all they ever do is craft), you can quest and level or do the epic quests (there's other stuff too but they are the main stuff). Throughout LotRO, you become a hero-of-sorts. You are in the background of the main events and have your own story to tell and act out as you fight the evils of the Witch King, Saruman and Sauron. Overall, I really recommend the game to all Middle-earth fans or a fan of MMOs. Of course, the game does have some problems such as PvMP. Give the game a try but I do have to note that you do need a bit of patience as at the start it (may) seem a little boring but becomes more fun and interesting after about the first 20 levels (isn't that much and hard to get too). So, yeah I give the gaves a thumbs up and 4 out of 5 stars.

I played LOTRO for about a year when it first came out and just returned to it 5 days ago. I was a bit concerned about it going F2P because most games that do that pretty much design it as Free to Win or design it in a manner that gives those that shell out the big bucks an unfair advantage. Fortunately LOTRO didn't go that route. You can play this game and never spend a penny because you earn points within the game to spend on unlocking material and servives. Sure it comes easier and quicker to those willing to pay for the points but if you don't mind grinding some then you can bypass spending real money. LOTRO to me also did a great job with the immersion factor. You feel like you are a part of Middle Earth. While the graphics don't hold up to the latest titles, LOTRO is still a great game and worth trying. I'm hooked.

To anyone who is a fan of lotr books or movie it is great because you can roam the world and it is based off the book and is accurate but is also difficult to level past 32 if you have no quest pack

Great MMORPG. It is surpising that they don't make you pay for it. Aside from the out dated graphics there is much fun to be had.

At this point in time it seems a bit outdated. I played it with a Steely Dawn Bundle. The game at this point in time feels outdated, and gives no direction in the game. I feel that with a LOTR Online game there would be a much larger story line involved in the game and I felt like there was no story, and no challenge. I quit very shortly after and found little enjoyment out of the game.

It's a pretty decent F2P game on it's own but I found it outdated and boring.
