Lord of the Rings Online Update 13 to revamp North Downs

Posted on February 3, 2014 AT 04:21am

Turbine has revealed that Lord of the Rings Online‘s North Downs area will be getting a revamp as part of the game’s Update 13.

During the recent “Take the Hobbits to Isengard” in-game event, Community Manager Rick Heaton revealed that North Downs will be one of several zones receiving an update.

“Update 13 will see a few zones revamped. A few of have been asked for by many people. You will get some more information in the 20 questions, but I’ll spill the beans since you going to read it next week. North Downs will be getting a once-over,” he said.

Heaton confirmed last month that Turbine had renewed the Lord of the Rings license until 2017. ”We plan to support LOTRO for many years to come,” he wrote. ”I really want to be as clear as possible on this subject to avoid any further confusion or misunderstanding. The license was renewed.”
