The latest expansion to Lord of the Rings Online – Siege of Mirkwood – is set to launch December 1st. There are a few perks for pre-ordering apparently; Lifetime members who order an ‘Adventure Pack’ (which seems to be a DLC type item (2 character slots, shared storage access)) get Siege of Mirkwood for free.. of course, you pay 19.99 for the Adventure Pack – depending on the pricing of the expansion this might be a good thing (details on the expansion show it to be a mini-expansion, I wouldn’t expect full price to be more than 39.99.. but I could be wrong).
There are a few other goodies to be had with various conditions, check out the forum post linked to below for more information.
