Travel with your Fellowship in the fight against the forces
of Sauron. Across the wide lands of Middle-earth, the Free
Peoples must face the threatening Shadow growing in the East.
All of Mordor is stirring as Sauron dispatches the Nazgūl
to hunt for the Ring. The rumour of war brings forth many
eager adventurers who will find their place among the great
events of the Third Age. High deeds call to the willing, for
their time is at hand. Hundreds of thousands of people will
enter the perpetual world of Middle-earth for the very first
time. Prepare yourself to choose a path amongst the likes
of Elves, Dwarves, and Humans. Will you choose to fight for
the things that bring peace to the land or will you add to
the corruption of Middle-earth as the forces of Sauron move
swiftly to extinguish all that is good?...
Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is the only
massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) set

solo or in Fellowships.
It seems to have taken an age to get here, but finally Tolkien's
Middle-earth has made it to a MMORPG. The game spans legendary
Eriador, including the pastoral Shire, the Elven enclave of

and movies, it's a joy to be able to wander around and find
your favourite locations. And with over 50 million square
metres of Middle-earth to explore you won't get bored of your
surroundings in a hurry.

you do get the first 30 days free, the prospect of having
to remember to renew your subscription on a regular basis
is a little bit of a slap in the face for most cash strapped

aficionados, but will find a welcome home in any gamer's collection.
