It’s a strange and uncertain new era in Lord of the Rings Online, as Standing Stone Games has moved to start selling quest packs to everyone — including its subscribers. Update 28: War of Three Peaks arrives today in the game, but you won’t be experiencing it unless you shell out some cash — not LOTRO Points — to pay at least $20 for it.
“Missions are a new way for one or two people to play together between levels 20 and 130,” the studio explained. “Players can access the Missions hub by visiting a Gabil’akkâ Stable-master, located near other stable masters.”
Update 28 arrives at about the same time as the studio is making some adjustments to the LOTRO Market. These changes don’t look that significant right now, but the studio’s developers say that they “are looking forward to bringing more features to the updated LOTRO Market in the future after this initial release during War of Three Peaks.”
