Turbine announced today a celebration of the second anniversary of The Lord of the Rings Online that will run from April 24, 2009 to June 30, 2009.
"It's been another incredible year for LOTRO and Turbine," said Jeffrey
Steefel, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online. "Being named both
2008 MMO of the Year and Best Expansion of 2008, coupled with the overwhelmingly
positive response to the game from fans, has firmly cemented LOTRO as one of the
world's premier online entertainment experiences. Our anniversary is a chance
for us to celebrate with our past and present players and enjoy everything that
is special about Middle-earth and thank them for their wonderful support with
some special subscription options."
The Lord of the Rings Online Second Anniversary Celebration includes:
Anniversary Pricing Plans: From April 24th through June 30th, Turbine is
offering special anniversary pricing plans. Players can choose any multi-month
plan (90 days or longer) and lock in a monthly price of $9.99 for as long as
they maintain the new subscription plan.
During the anniversary celebration, monsters throughout Middle-earth
will drop rare items when defeated. Players can exchange these rare items
for a special gift box that will reward them with a variety of in-game items
to aid them in their adventures in Middle-earth.
Turbine is also giving players who have active subscriptions as of June
30th a special in-game gift—the Writ of Passage, which provides 20%
discounts at stable masters throughout Middle-earth.
