Expect some new content as well.
Turbine, the developers of the incredibly popular Lord Of The Rings Online, recently released a post on their game forums that the license for the game has been renewed until at least 2017. Community Manager Rick Heaton wrote:
“We plan to support LOTRO for many years to come,.I really want to be as clear as possible on this subject to avoid any further confusion or misunderstanding. The license was renewed. We have an agreement that runs through 2017.”
Apparently there had been quite a bit of worry among Lord Of the Rings Online fans when Turbine announced that they had no plans to develop new in-game content such as missions or dungeons, and the only improvements that would likely be seen would be done to pre-existing content.
However, the author of the release article has clarified that the comments were made relative to a specific period of time, and are not representative of Turbine’s goals on Lord Of The Rings Online in general. Odds are with this license renewal we can expect to see some new content.
