The latest producer’s letter for the Lord of the rings online talks about spring and the upcoming 15th anniversary of the game. Coming soon in Update 33 will be an expansion for The Shire, the first in years, and an update on available content and VIP. Multiple classes and the High Elf race, as well as all premium quests, instances, and expansions released since 2007, inclusive Helm’s Deepis made available to all permanently free of charge.
This follows last year’s offering of most of the game’s released premium quests for free with a special code. Perhaps the release of the additional content as a gift pack for everyone has prompted a surge in activity. Last month, rangers and ruins has already made some changes by removing the gold cap and thoughts on virtue, race and class traits have already been made free for everyone. The High Elf Ace will also be free for everyone, as will several classes: Rune-keeper, Guardian, and Beorning, which will also be available to everyone. Of course, including all premium content and extensions through Helm’s Deepthis gives you the opportunity to play through all of the game’s content in a new way if you previously did not have access to these quests or classes.
VIP members now get access to standard versions of mordor, Minas Morguland War of the Three Peaks in their subscription when this level changes. More changes to VIP are coming, but none released yet.
Details on upcoming releases must start with Yondershire and expand The Shire with territory known for hobbit hermits and those with something to hide. Yondershire also has some history as an area that has had some conflicts with the softer and more comfortable parts.
Also, there will soon be a higher level cap and the Legendary World of Anor, which will bring players to Minas Morgul. This will be out on April 13th and will also be followed by updates to Shadowfax and Treebeard throughout the rest of the spring.
More announcements on content and the upcoming anniversary celebrations are promised in April. The Anniversary Festival returns with a new instance called Firework Hail! and other unpublished details.
