Lord of the Rings Online Rise of Isengard Beta Begins July 27

We’ve been talking here and there about the upcoming Rise of Isengard expansion for Lord of the Rings Online. This morning, Turbine has announced that they will have a beta program for the new expansion, and that it will start next week.

In an article on the official LotRO site, the beta is announced for a July 27 start. It will be invite-only, with anyone who’s pre-purchased the expansion receiving preferred access.

As we told you before, there will be three different editions of Rise of Isengard to choose from.

Rise of Isengard Base Edition – Includes the full Rise of Isengard expansion plus:

  • Steed of the Gap, a new in-game mount with matching red cosmetic cloak for every character on your account
  • In-game title – Guard of the Isen
  • 25% XP boost for all characters on an account up to level 65

 
Rise of Isengard Heroic Edition – Includes the full Rise of Isengard expansion plus:

  • 1,000 Turbine Points for use in the LOTRO Store
  • Steed of the Gap, a new in-game mount with choice of matching cosmetic cloak and armor in your choice of red, white or green for every character on your account
  • In-game title – Guard of the Isen
  • 25% XP boost for all characters on an account up to level 65

 
Rise of Isengard Legendary Edition — Includes the full Rise of Isengard expansion plus:

  • 1,000 Turbine Points for use in the LOTRO Store
  • All three Steeds of the Gap, new in-game mounts with matching cosmetic cloak and armor in all three colors for every character on your account
  • In-game title – Guard of the Isen
  • 25% XP boost for all characters on an account up to level 65
  • Access to the Path of the Fellowship Quest Packs including Trollshaws, Eregion, Moria, Lothlorien and Mirkwood

 
All the bonus items will be available as soon as your purchase is complete, so you can start using that 25% XP boost right away. You should be able to get your characters all the way to level 65 just in time for the launch of the expansion and the raise of the level cap to 75.

You can get all the details, and tender your pre-order, over on the official LotRO site.
