Turbine does amazing things to the elven realm Lothlórien, in the first free content update of The Lord of the Rings Online since the Mines of Moria expansion.

These new screens are the first peek at the expanded forest of Lothlórien coming in Lord of the Rings Online Volume II: Book 7: Leaves of Lόrien, where players will be able to slowly but surely continue the epic storyline from the book series.


It never ceases to amaze me how well the lands envisioned by the Turbine artist match my own mental pictures of the lands Tolkien created in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Forget the movies, as entertaining as they might have been at times; this is what Middle-Earth was supposed to look like.
