Check out Lord of the Rings Online’s new PvP map

    
22

After eight years of being confined to a single zone, Lord of the Rings Online’s PvP population will soon get a new map upon which to fight.

The Battle of Osgiliath is coming with this summer’s update, pitting the Freeps (Free Peoples of Middle-earth) against the Creeps (monster play characters) against the backdrop of the iconic war-torn city. The patch will also contain quality-of-life improvements for PvP, including Creep mail and the ability to retrait anywhere in the world.

The map is currently on the test server, and LOTRO Players took advantage of this to create a lengthy video tour of the city and its objectives. Check out Osgiliath in action after the jump!

I realized why I like Monster Play, but hate PvP.   When I’m a monster, if I lose, i deserved it.   ;-)

New map for those who like action right now. At the same time it’s quite labirynth’ish

I never cared for the PVP.  For me, it was usually too laggy.

ComradeStanimir  Not sure when you last played, but they revamped LI not so long ago.

LOTRO PvP is good. It’s at a large scale but you also are afforded a level of personal influence. GW2 was always stale to me because it truly didn’t matter if I personally was even there when the scale is hundreds v hundreds. 
Still, I won’t return for this. I’m not grinding LIs, Gear, and Empowerment forever just so I won’t get owned on my hunter.

anatheod I was always surprised that they didn’t introduce a PvP map when Moria came out. But Osgiliath should be cool.
