The Lord of the Rings Onlines upcoming new mini-expansion is now available for pre-purchase!


Standing Stone Games have today launched the pre-purchase options for their upcoming mini-expansion to LOTRO. The expansion is due to launch on the 9th November 2022 and has a focus on lower level content! Reveal the mysteries of the One Ring as you venture through the reedy fens of Swanfleet and the moors of Cardolan. Journey alongside Boromir to Rivendell, and run afoul of the Witch-King and Nazul in their pursuit of "Baggins" and the peaceful land of the "Shire" as shadow begins to pour forth from the land of Mordor. Before the Shadow features:

  • Questing from levels 1 to 32 in addition to four new Books for new characters

  • Two new regions: Swanfleet and Cardolan

  • A new Six-person Instance

  • A new Skirmish

  • A new Delving difficulty system: Higher level characters can increase the difficulty of new missions to earn great rewards!

  • New Themed Missions Wrapper: Earn rewards by completing daily and weekly rotating Missions!

  • And more!

There are three options available, starting at £16.99 for the standard edition. I personally will be going for the Ultimate fan bundle which includes exclusive perks including: 10 Extra Shared Storage Slots, Large Healer’s Carry-all, Housing Teleporter, Armour of Flowing Silver, Elven Stars Weapon Aura, Flowing Silver Stone of the Tortoise, Flowing Silver Stone, and the new Elk of Flowing Silver.
