Lord of the Rings Online music system


Earlier today we reported one of the extra layers of polish brought to Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar was a music system. The music system allows players to purchase an instrument from a vendor and play the instrument using the keyboard. It's not pre-recorded and impressive when you see a player in-game performing. Developers told us that the latest version of the music system compensates for lag allowing for bands to perform and sync properly. Above is a player in the open beta performing "Dust in the Wind." After the break is an extended version by a different player. Expect these clips to start popping up all over YouTube soon enough. There has been no word yet from the developers whether this music system will be implemented into quests.
