LOTRO adds space combat!


And yeah, apparently this is really in the game.  The button, at least.

Update: Aha, this isn’t quite new — what brought it to my attention was mention of it due to the “feature” being removed in today’s patch.  Boo!

    I hope they announce it just like the Muppets:

    Hey, they added Runekeepers so why not, lol. In all seriousness, though, can we use this to start a Turbine-is-working-on-a-space-MMO rumor?

    Oh boo!

    Did anybody actually press the button while it was live? I don’t recall whether anyone mentioned doing so in the forum thread about it.

    Must be for the “Voyages with Eärendil” expansion.

    My theory for the mystery project at Turbine is still Asheron’s Call 3, but it would be funny if it’s actually something Sci-Fi and they accidentally dropped in a reference to the live LOTRO client.

    They also got rid of the BG 1st boss farm fest….no more 2nd age symbols from Durchy!

    Unless you do him in challenge mode -those chests are unchanged. I’m actually surprised they went that route and didn’t just revert back to raid-locks.

    I should add, it’s not bad at all, and definitely an amusing read for Tolkein fans.
