LOTRO ushers in the Siege of Minas Tirith
Lord of the Rings Online players have finally made it to one of Middle-earth’s most famous metropolises: Minas Tirith.
Today the game has released Update 17: The Siege of Minas Tirith, which finds the titular city in the midst of a pitched battle. Players can explore a new region, Old Anórien, as well as take on two epic battles based in and around Minas Tirith. There’s also a 13-chapter addition to the main storyline with Volume IV: Book 4. Players can access the new book without having to complete any previous epic story installments.
Other changes with Update 17 include improvements to the cosmetic weapon system, the ability for Beornings to use bows, and many changes to crafting’s tenth tier.
