The Lord of the Rings MMO

The Lord of The Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar for PC is the first MMORPG set in the world created by none other than J.R.R. Tolkien. The plot of the game is inspired by the story presented in The Lord of The Rings trilogy, however, it has been adequately adjusted for the sake of the game to provide players with an interesting experience while they venture through Middle-Earth.


In The Lord of The Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, a player is tasked with fighting the forces of evil comprising the minions of Sauron, such as the filthy orcs and other dangerous beasts. During the game, one can expect many battles, interacting with other players and NPCs, collecting numerous pieces of equipment, and gathering experience points allowing one to develop his character and unlock new skills for him. When creating his character, a player can choose from such races as Elves, Men, Hobbits, and Dwarves, and then modify the physical appearance of his hero.

Players can choose different paths to follow – one can become a great warrior, or settle down for a peaceful life revolving around gathering resources and crafting numerous items.

Technical aspects

The game delivers 3D visuals, which allowed the developers to lavishly recreate the Middle-Earth we all know from the movies.

Since mid-2010, the game has switched to a free-to-play business model. This means that players can enjoy it for free, however, those who want to unlock the access to the so-called 'premium content' have to utilize the optional microtransactions system.
