If all goes right — and why wouldn’t it? — next week will see the release of Minas Morgul for Lord of the Rings Online. The game’s newest expansion takes players back to Mordor and into the City of the Dead (which is not, contrary to popular belief, Hoboken, NJ), where players will also travel back in time in what we assume will be Gandalf’s tricked-out DeLorean eagle.Lina’s Biscuity Burrow has a terrific photo shoot of the new lands and landmarks along with commentary.
