LOTR Online: Shadows of Angmar beta sign-ups begin

Codemasters has launched the European site for The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, and opened up beta sign-ups in the US and Europe.

The launch of the official European Web site for The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar has been announced by Codemasters Online Gaming. The game lets players undertake solo adventures or create online fellowships to fight the battle for Middle-earth within a landscape that takes in both the Shire and Angmar.

The site, www.lotro-europe.com, will be offering content for the massively multiplayer online role-playing game in English, German, and French and will feature localized forums.

Sign-ups for the European and North American beta programs have also begun today. European gamers can sign up at www.lotro-europe.com/beta-signup.php. US gamers can sign up at http://lotro.turbine.com/betasignup.

Ed Blincoe, product marketing manager at Codemasters Online Gaming, commented: "Launching the website, complete with the opportunity for our community to sign up for the beta, shows Codemasters' commitment to The Lord of the Rings Online. This is just the beginning of a concerted effort to make sure people who are excited about the game will be able to get into the beta and experience the amazing world that Turbine has created."

i downloaded and am currently playing. Its a pretty fun game. I dont really get into the mass multiplayer games but i found this one to be really entertaining. Not something i would pay monthly for but nevertheless a good dame.

Sigma8_This is really cool..but I think Phantagram(Kingdom of Fire) really has good concept by allowing you to personally enter in the battle. Finding a good balance between strategy and real-time fighting would be excellent!!

Fothermucker. The page is down. I'm always up for a beta. I'm curious to try this out and see if it's something unique or just WOW with LoTR skins slapped on.

I'm hopeful yet pessimistic. Turbine has made some significant contributions to the genre, but I'm not impressed with them as a company. If someone could combine the Lord of the Rings world with a game as well-polished and refined as WoW, the combination would be absolutely deadly.
