“We have some good news on Mordor; all’s good and we’re ready to go on Wednesday,” says the studio. “The LOTRO game worlds will be unavailable from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) on Wednesday, August 2nd, to release Update 21: Mordor. Release Notes will be posted on Tuesday. Thank you for your patience, and we’ll see you soon.”
The expansion was meant to launch today but was delayed at almost the last-minute as a result of the discovery of a nasty bug. As we wrote this morning, the original launch plan and preorder packages gave Standing Stone Games the option to delay for up to a month, though apparently that won’t be necessary.
