There is even more news filtering out from E3. This article comes from Kalamari Kastle and brings to light some interesting points that we hadn’t known about before. A big thanks to Crell for bringing this article to our attention.
- The Gap of Rohan, will be featuring iconic locations from the book including the Fords of the Isen where Théodred defended the northern planes of Rohan against Saruman’s Uruks and Dunland allies.
- “…you will also be able to meet famous characters including Theodred and Grimbold…”
- Players will be able to adventure directly into Orthanc and battle hosts of monsters with the help of the legendary character Quickbeam. (Hooray for Ents! And I guess this means that Goldenstar wins that debate! – Merric)
- Players will be getting access to 5 more skills (Take this as being “in flux”; everything can change, but it’s nice to have a specific number.)
Of course what excited me the most was the description of Dunland:
Dunland will be one of the most trafficked regions where players will be able to interact with craftsmen and create new tier 7 items as well as have access to numerous shops and other important vendors. In addition to being a pivotal location in LOTRO’s epic story Dunland is also by far the most elaborate region of the game being host to every environment imaginable including snow covered mountains, large dense forests, flat and barren desserts, rolling hills, large grassy plains, dark marshes and incredibly large encampments.One of the most breathtaking moments was when our character was on top of a mountain looking down upon a massive Dunland encampment full of life and vibrancy.
I don’t know about you, but I can completely see myself there already. I want to thank Kalamari Kastle for posting this information!
