Turbine is continuing The Lord of the Rings Online with yet another expansion, and it's one that was bound to come up sooner or later: Helm's Deep. Launching this fall, the new content will of course revolve around the famed Battle of Hornburg as well as Edoras and Dunharrow.
Not much else in the way of details was included in the announcement, though the level cap will be getting a bump from 85 up to 95. New skills and updated class specializations were also given a brief mention. While Turbine hasn't come out with a price point for Helm's Deep, based on prior releases, it should presumably be in the neighborhood of forty bucks.
