“Mirkwood” follows “Mines of Moria” as the game’s second expansion, this time raising the level cap to a whopping 65, and opening up environments east of the Misty Mountains. Numerous dungeons, raids, and brand new “skirmishes” or randomized instances are also yours when the pack releases.

“2009 has been a year of unprecedented growth for The Lord of the Rings Online and the launch of Siege of Mirkwood will end the year with a bang,” said Jeffrey Steefel, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online. “As the game expands east of the Misty Mountains, players will face the raging war and shadow that has spread across Middle-earth and the new Skirmish system will thrust players and their soldiers into the War of the Ring.”

Look for “Siege of Mirkwood” on retail shelves this fall, but stay here, at Blast, for hot and fresh images from Middle-Earth very soon!
