Lord of the Rings Online Helm’s Deep Expansion Now Available

Posted on November 20, 2013 AT 11:44am

The Lord of the Rings Online’s fifth expansion, Helm’s Deep, is now available in North America and Europe, following a short delay from its intended November 18 launch date.

Helm’s Deep expands West Rohan, adding Broadacres, Stonedeans, the Kingstead, the Westfold, the Eastfold, Edoras, Aldburg, Dunharrow, and the fortress of the Hornburg for players to explore. With the addition of Hornbug, players can now participate in the Battle of the Hornburg, the climactic battle from The Two Towers. Helm’s Deep also raises the level cap to 95.

The LotRO expansion was delayed briefly as the result of a power outage at developer Turbine Inc’s data center over the weekend.

Players can pick up a standard version Helm’s Deep for $39.99 or a Premium Edition that comes with additional in-game content for $59.99 through the official Lord of the Rings Online website.
