Beginning today, heroes can adventure to the Shores of Evendim in The Lord of the Rings Online.
Turbine released Book 9: Shores of Evendim today, the first of many free updates planned for subscribers to The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. Book 9 introduces an entirely new landscape region, over 100 additional quests, the battle for Helegrod raid, nine new monsters and major enhancements to monster play and the music system.
As the Fellowship prepares to leave Rivendell, Aragorn must re-forge Narsil, the Sword of Elendil. Gandalf has asked for help in Aragorn’s search of the lands of Evendim for an ancient jewel that once belonged in the sword’s hilt. This powerful relic must be recovered before the Dark Lord Sauron finds it. Players are challenged to secure the valuables of the abandoned city, defy Angmar’s encroaching grip on Annúminas, and aid Aragorn in his quest to re-forge Narsil.
The Lord of the Rings Online delivers an interactive experience that takes players adventuring throughout J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, from the quaint surroundings of the Shire to Angmar, the vile kingdom of the Witch-king, players will experience the world of Middle-earth as never before. The Lord of the Rings Online is now available for purchase at major retailers across North America and Europe.
