The producer of Lord of the Rings Online has released some information to the public regarding the release of the game’s next expansion: Riders of Rohan.
“We’ve had a very successful Beta program with some of the largest and most active beta player populations we’ve seen since Moria. The amount and quality of feedback on our largest expansion ever has been fantastic,” said Kate Paiz, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online™.
“Thanks to some great efforts from beta players, we’ve identified issues that we think need to be addressed before we can launch. In order to address those issues and meet our expectations for quality we’re going to need more time. As a result, we’ve elected to delay our launch to October 15th.”
“We understand that many players have been looking forward to joining us in Rohan as soon as possible and will be disappointed by this news. As a token of our appreciation for your patience we are granting a gift to all pre-purchasers of Riders of Rohan.”
“We thank you for your feedback and patience and hope to see you all in Rohan later this year.”
Players who have pre-purchased the expansion pack will receive 500 Turbine Points—the game’s online store currency—as well as a bag of goodie consumables. The gifts are expected to be made public around September 5th.
