Lord of the Rings Online developer Turbine has released a batch of screenshots for its expansion Rise of Isengard, including new concept art of the mighty Draigoch, an enemy that will require a band of 24 players to take down!
Players will also get the chance to journey to three new regions in Middle Earth, including Dunland, the Gap of Rohan and Isengard itself. Whilst there players will have the chance to visit Orthanac, one of the legendary Two Towers, where the corrupt wizard Saruman's influence holds.
Rise of Isengard will also feature a raise in level cap, so players will be able to battle their way to level 75. Lord of the Rings Online has seemingly grown in popularity since it became free to play towards the end of last year and with this new expansion on the way, Middle Earth fans are going to be kept questing for a long time to come.
Lord of the Rings Online: Rise of Isengard is set to launch on September 27th, 2011.
