Turbine Announces 5 New Instances For LOTR By Year End
Fans of Lord of the Rings Online can expect much to do before 2012. While the upcoming Rise of Isengard has only one new Instance (in LOTRO, an “Instance” is essentially a side quest or side area, that allows players to have private adventures), more are on the way. A Turbine employee who posts on the forums as “Sapience” confirmed on the LOTRO forums 5 more of them, in fact.That announcement, in full:
We are currently preparing five new instances for release post Isengard.
Rise of Isengard will be released on September 27 along with a 24 Player raid. There will be 3 Three player, 1 Six player and 1 Twelve player instance released in Update 5, the first update after the release of Rise of Isengard. These instances will be free to any player who has pre-purchased the Rise of Isengard expansion or who purchases after launch via the Turbine Web Store.
It looks like the enemies of Sauron have a very nice Christmas season to look forward to. Hooray!
