Codemasters to Distirbute in Europe -

Turbine has announced a partnership with Codemasters. Codemasters will be distributing the anticipated MMORPG, Lord of the Rigns Online: Shadows or Angmar throughout Europe:


Codemasters partners with Turbine, Inc. to bring The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ to Europe.

Friday 3rd March, (10am UK time) – Codemasters has extended its relationship with Turbine, Inc., a premier publisher of online subscription entertainment, and today announces it has secured the exclusive European publishing and online operational rights to The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™; the first and only MMORPG based on the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is currently in development at Turbine’s studios in Westwood, Mass. and is expected to launch late in 2006. Codemasters Online Gaming will publish and operate the title across Europe. Language support will include English, French and German.

Jeffrey Anderson, president and CEO of Turbine, Inc., commented: “Through the last year we have established a close working relationship with Codemasters and have been impressed with its commitment and expertise in the online gaming space. We are delighted to partner further with the company to deliver The Lord of the Rings Online experience throughout Europe.”

Rod Cousens, CEO of Codemasters, commented:
“The Lord of the Rings is one the most-suited literary pieces of fantasy to translate into a rich and rewarding MMORPG experience and it is immensely pleasing to be extending our relationship with Turbine, Inc to bring its superbly crafted work to Europe.”

The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar will allow players to forge heroic legacies in the War for Middle-Earth. Gamers will experience an evolving persistent recreation of Tolkien's world-renowned fantasy realm where they can establish their unique reputations, and discover and wield legendary weapons in strategic battles, while adventuring solo or in Fellowships.

This game spans legendary Eriador, including the pastoral Shire, the Elven enclave of Rivendell, rustic Bree, and more. As the lands of Middle-Earth fall under a growing threat from the dark realm of Angmar, only the mightiest of deeds and the stoutest of hearts can halt the advance of Sauron's minions.
