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."
