A Look At The Lord of the Rings Online's Gap of Rohan

Here's a look at the upcoming Rise of Isengard expansion for The Lord of the Rings Online massively multiplayer online game.


The pack launches on Sept. 27 and comes three new regions, the ability to advance to Level 75 and new 24-Player Raids. Here's a quick explanation of the new regions.

Dunland – Adventure amidst the bright forests in the foothills of the southern Misty Mountains. Beware the Dunland Clans, rugged warriors tempted by the dark promise of power.


Gap of Rohan – Battle over the legendary pass between Eriador and the plane of Rohan. This key strategic point must be defended against the ambitions of Sauron.

Isengard – Explore Orthanc, one of the iconic Two Towers as it rises over the once beautiful Isengard valley. The once beautiful vale now desecrated beyond imagination by the Wizard Saruman the betrayer.

The developer video above also walks us through some of the things to expect in the expansion.

I started playing during the free-to-play beta and just hit level 40 a few weeks ago. I love my Rune-Keeper (and my level-30 Warden), but I don't play this game as much as I once did. I would love to get to try out the legendary items, but it'll be a while before I've leveled enough and completed enough of the main story to use those.
