The Lord of the Rings Online
The Lord of the Rings Online is a fantasy MMORPG where you take on the role of a Man, Elf, Dwarf, or Hobbit and set out on your own journey through J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Now free-to-play, The Lord of the Rings Online (called LotRO in the MMO community) has gained an increase in player activity and interest, and is recognized as one of the best MMO’s in the free-to-play market.
From the start, you are thrown into the action with interactive quests and fierce battles. Players are only given the option of choosing between the ‘good’ or ‘free’ races, but can play as monsters in special PvP battles starting at level 10. In total there are nine distinct classes available, though not all are available to all races. PvP in LotRO is a bit different than most MMORPGs; players fight in large battles either as special level 50 monsters or as their normal characters.
The Lord of the Rings Online will keep you engaged in a rich story, filled with so much lore already, that story fans will be entertained and role-players will never want to leave their computer chair. You should give this game a try, even if you’re new to the series. You won’t regret it.
