The Lord of the Rings Online - Legendary Server Launches Today

The “Anor” Legendary Server for Standing Stone Games' The Lord of the Rings Online that we first heard about back in October should be going live today (November 8, 2018). Those of you with an active subscription to the venerable MMORPG will get a chance to get a fresh start, enjoy some low-level activities, and then gradually explore the game's expanding content as soon as it becomes available.

Here's the official launch trailer:

And a quick recap of what to expect:

Daybreak Games will be launching The Lord of the Rings Online’s (LOTRO) Legendary Server tomorrow (11/8) at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT. Named Anor, players can relive the legend and experience the iconic MMO from the beginning. To recap, Anor’s features include:
  • New beginnings, historic tales: Whether it’s your first or fiftieth visit to Middle-earth, the Anor server sets all players on an even footing to allow players to adventure with new friends - or reconnect with old ones - on the path of Frodo, Gandalf, and the Fellowship of the Ring.
  • Rolling content: The Anor server starts out with only the initial Level 50 and below content, with a focus on the Shadows of Angmar story. Gradually the level cap and story content will unlock over time.
  • Much more than vanilla: Races and classes that were introduced in later updates including the High-elf, Rune-keeper, Warden, Beorning and more will be playable Anor. Additionally, all the bug fixes, gameplay and UX/UI improvements made to LOTRO over the years will be kept.
Anor is a subscriber-only experience available to VIP and Lifetime VIP subscribers. New content will be added to the server approximately every four months. Visit here for more information:
