Lord of the Rings Online: Steefel Offers Misson Brief of Book 8 in New Podcast
Jeffrey Steefel reveals the next chapter in the Lord of the Rings Online storyline in a new podcast. Book 8 takes adventures back into Moria for clean up detail and ultimately to Dol Guldur, Sauron’s Mirkwood stronghold, and the Hill of Sorcery.
Steefel also talks more about the new Skirmish feature which will give players the chance to use henchmen of a sort in instances. Marshaling troops of NPCs is a natural progression of gameplay with epic battles ahead in Rohan, Gondor, and Mordor.
TenTonHammer’s Loading Live podcast, LotRO’s Jeffrey Steefel on Book 8 runs just over 45 minutes. It’s enough time to get in a decent workout or keep you occupied during rush hour.
Most of Gaming Today plays LotRO together, so fans can be sure of getting all the details on the latest content. You can also find a wealth of information on the Lord of the Rings Online homepage.
The team at Turbine has walked the fine line of being true to Tolkien’s world while expanding Middle-earth and bringing the story to life. After celebrating LotRO’s second anniversary, the team is hard at work on the next big chapter in the Lord of the Rings as players aid the Fellowship and become heroes in their own right. Although the next expansion hasn’t been announced, I would guess we will be headed into Isengard and maybe Rohan.
