On March 26th, 2010 PAX East hit Boston. We were there hoping and praying for that an announcement would be made about a new expansion, like what happened at PAX Prime and the announcement of Siege of Mirkwood. Although no official announcement was made, Adam Mersky (Director of Communications at Turbine) may have given us one after all!
This video surfaced on the 5th of May on GameSharkVideo’s youtube channel and was titled “Interview with LOTRO”. I don’t think they knew what that had on their hands or this would have surfaced a little faster!
Listen for just the first minute. At 56 seconds Adam very quickly states (so listen closely!),
“… our next big region will be Enedwaith later this year.”
A while back there was an interesting post on the LOTRO Forums by Galahadur, pointing out interesting additions to the Lorebook map as well as a Finnish game magazine article in which Turbine’s LOTRO Producer Jeffery Steffel says the new expansion will start with an E!
What is interesting is that Enedwaith is even listed as a region on the in-game map as far back as the Mines of Moria expansion!
For more information about Enedwaith keep an eye out for my next post on the region, its Lore and continued speculation on what is in store for this new unannounced expansion!
