Lord Of the Rings Midnight Madness Launch Events
With Lord of the Rings Online launching in the US this Tuesday, April 24th, Turbine is teaming up with Gamestop to host “Midnight Madness” launch events at five Gamestop locations throughout the country. Fans who show up at these events will not only get their copy of the game, they’ll get to meet members of the development team as well. There will be contests to win signed posters, pre-paid game cards, and exclusive event t-shirts. Heck, they’re even holding contests for the best LotR themed costumes, with each location awarding prizes to the three best costumes. The only downside to this is that the five locations are: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle. If you’re not close to one of those locations, you’re out of luck. If you can’t make one of these events, which run from 11:00PM – Midnight on the 23rd, the game will be available in stores nationwide on Tuesday, April 24th.
