'Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar' has arrived

The head start has begun for those who pre-ordered the Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar MMORPG. Today servers across Europe were fired up to allow the tens of thousands of preorder customers to see what waited for them in the land of Middle Earth....

As well as the head start, the preorder packs give players access to the Founder Program offering two membership options, one of which is a lifetime subscription for £99.99 (EUR 149.99).
This is the first and only MMO based on the books of J.R.R Tolkien and as expected features locations in the novels while giving you the chance to meet characters like Gandalf and the rest of those in the fellowship.
Apparently the preorder packs are still available so if you want to “move to Middle Earth” as the campaign says, there’s still time as the final release of the game is on April the 24th.
