No Comment 23 Views

Turbine, Inc. announced today a special promotion featuring limited-time pricing offers to celebrate the second anniversary of The Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO), the award-winning massively multiplayer online roleplaying game.  The LOTRO Anniversary celebration 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.*
  • In-Game Celebration: 
    • 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.

So if you’ve been waiting for the price to drop on the game this is almost as good.

*For current subscribers, the anniversary price plan takes effect at the expiration of their current subscription.  For new players, it takes effect at the expiration of the free 30 days of game time that is included in their purchase of The Lord of the Rings Online
