Lord of the Rings Online celebrates Bilbo’s Birthday, hedges on mini-expansion specifics


Tomorrow is September 22nd, which is a significant date for Lord of the Rings Online players. It’s the date of both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins’ birthday, which is the event that kicks off the book trilogy. In the MMO itself, the birthday is a small but fun event that involves solving riddles and getting a “Birthday Girl” or “Birthday Boy” title. This in-game event is scheduled to wrap up on the 23rd, so we’re warning you early since you haven’t got a lot of time to actually play through it.

Speaking of holidays, Standing Stone Games said that it’s rescheduling the always-exciting Harvestmath festival. While there’s no date for that event yet, October’s Durin’s Day event is going to take place from the 15th through the 21st of next month.

Regarding the game’s controversial upcoming DLC, the studio continued to be vague about when the pack would be available to buy for LOTRO points and what would be in both of the pricier editions.

“We’d expect it to be available around the same time other expansions have been available for points. This information is also often mentioned in the FAQ on the sales page, which isn’t ready yet,” SSG’s community manager posted on the forums.
