Lord of the Rings Online Developer Talks “Ride of the Grey Company” Quests
Lord of the Rings Online is about to go “Free to play” in a few weeks, but long time players have more to look forward to than losing their mandatory subscription fees — there are story updates on the horizon.
Jeff “MadeOfLions” Libby details many of the upcoming story changes and talks about the implementation of quest triggers to represent advancement through the story. Thanks to new quest states, players can interact with the Grey Company setting characters and even notice when they leave Rivendell.
Libby also discusses how Volume III Chapter 2: “Ride of the Grey Company” is comprised of 15 “soloable” chapters. The new sections are built to transition the games central plot toward the player character’s eventual arrival at Rohan, shadowing the Fellowship’s progress through the War of the Ring.
You can read all the details over on the Lord of the Rings Online website.
