WBIE and Turbine announce Helm's Deep, an expansion for The Lord of the Rings Online coming to the Tolkienesque MMORPG this autumn, raising the level cap to 95 and "bringing the War of the Ring to players on a monumental scale." Here's the deal:


(NEEDHAM, MA – April 24, 2013) -- Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment unveiled today The Lord of the Rings Online™: Helm’s Deep™, the next expansion to the award-winning free-to-play massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) developed by Turbine. Helm’s Deep will continue the Epic Story into the western plains of Rohan, allow players to take a direct role in the battle for Helm’s Deep and advance the level cap to 95.

“With Helm’s Deep, we’re bringing the War of the Ring to players on a monumental scale,” said Kate Paiz, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine. “Our team is thrilled to create another iconic moment in Middle-earth, and put players in the center of the action.”

Huh. I kept seeing it being delayed and delayed, and missed the release announcement apparently.

To be honest, an MMO version of Helm's Deep sounds pretty awesome.

Ball's Deep would be better.
Just the tip?

Sploosh.


On topic, did they actually release that Rohan expansion then? Or are they just bravely charging ahead while still keeping that in its almost infinitely delayed status?
