Here's a pretty thing: LoTR Online gets a Mithril Edition

9:30 PM on 10.08.2011 // Liam Fisher

Back in the summer of 2010 Lord of the Rings Online developer Turbine announced that they'd be taking their flagship MMOs on a trip to the increasingly popular free-to-play model. It was, and still is, all the rage and so far it's worked quite nicely. Alongside that business model however, a new retail edition has been announced with some pretty nifty goodies.

The MMOs Mithril Edition, retailing for $29.99, will include a starter guide, install discs, a keyboard map, a set of bonus quests, 2000 points to spend in the in-game store, and an exclusive mount, the Steed of the Horse-lords. With the recent launch of the new Rise of Isengard expansion, this seems like a pretty stellar way to get started with one of the better free MMOs on the market.
