Lord of the Rings Online News - Helm's Deep - Rich In Lore

Posted by Suzie Ford on Oct 02, 2013  | 21 comments in our forums

Turbine has been proudly showing off the locations and environments coming in the next Lord of the Rings Online expansion, Helm's Deep, that is slated to go live in November. We've tagged along on a couple of tours and have some thoughts to share. Read on before leaving your thoughts in the comments.

One of the things the team was eager to point out is that the focus of this expansion is to use "ambient storytelling" as much as to use active, vocalized (or textual) storytelling. Small and large touches bring this ambient story to life. For instance, in our travels, we came upon a caravan that had clearly been ambushed and all party members brutally slain and left there to rot. Other things like smoke billowing in the distance, towns and villages are utterly destroyed. All of this and more is included to give the story a visual twist.
