Lord of the Rings Online is a free to play fantasy MMORPG which is preparing to launch its latest expansion pack soon. Developer Turbine is already reporting that the beta for the expansion is breaking population records for servers, requiring more to be installed.
“It’s the first expansion that we’ve had since Shadows of Angmar that required us to add servers to the beta world to match the number of players trying to log in and participate. It was the first beta since Shadows of Angmar that actually tripped our login queues on the beta world and forced us to raise the max player population.” said Turbine’s Rick Heaton.
The Helm’s Deep expansion is set to launch on Monday, November 18th. To find out more about Lord of the Rings Online, visit the game page.
