Codemasters To Publish MMORPG of LOTR

Welcome to acronym hell! Following on from their licensing of Korean MMO RF Online, Codemasters has announced their new Online Gaming division will be bringing another MMO to Europe – The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar.

Jeffrey Anderson, president and CEO of Turbine, Inc., commented: “Through the last year we have established a close working relationship with Codemasters and have been impressed with its commitment and expertise in the online gaming space. We are delighted to partner further with the company to deliver The Lord of the Rings Online experience throughout Europe.

Rod Cousens, CEO of Codemasters, commented: “The Lord of the Rings is one the most-suited literary pieces of fantasy to translate into a rich and rewarding MMORPG experience and it is immensely pleasing to be extending our relationship with Turbine, Inc to bring its superbly crafted work to Europe.

The MMO version of JRR Tolkein’s fantasy world will launch in Europe later this year in English, French and German.
