Lord of the Rings Online Update 7 Released

Posted on May 7, 2012 AT 07:23am

Game Update 7, titled Shades of the Past, for Lord of the Rings Online is now available to download.

For VIP players, the update adds a free new Skirmish titled ‘Storm on Methedras.’ ”Ascend the treacherous slopes of Methedras at the southern end of the Misty Mountains to confront a foe seeking to bring supernatural forces to bear against Rohan,” explains Turbine. We expect this to be made available to all players in the future.

Everyone else will get a chance to explore the revamped Fornost in North Downs instance, which features improvements in both gameplay and graphics. Visual updates and restructured quests have also been introduced in several of the game’s zones.

Fans will be pleased at the revamped quest lines and graphic improvements made to older sections of the game, however the lack of new free content is a little disappointing.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
