Riders of Rohan – Epic Story
We also have some new screenshots focusing on the new epic story that we will be getting with Riders of Rohan.
The Fellowship has departed Lothlórien by the river Anduin, continuing the errand of secrecy that began for them in Rivendell. Their hearts are heavy at the loss of Gandalf, their Wizard and guide, but they have resolved to continue on their path, despite the even greater trials that await them. Meanwhile, the Horse-lords of Rohan look to defend their land against invaders while Théoden, their beloved King, wastes away in the lonely hall of Meduseld. Orcs, Uruks, and Easterlings are running rampant throughout the plains and the Riddermark needs heroes. Discover the fate of the Fellowship and lend your sword to the Rohirrim as you defend this noble kingdom before all is lost.
