Lord of the Rings Online is barely in Open Beta, but Turbine already announced its first free content update, called Shores of Evendim. Coming in June, Shores of Evendim will challenge players to "secure the valuables of the abandoned city," "defy Angmar's encroaching grip on Annúminas," and "experience revolutionary new Prancin' Hobbit Mode (PHM)." Okay, we made that last part up. But one of these days, somebody needs to come up with a game featuring Prancin' Hobbit Mode. (Or at least Prancin' Ewok Mode.)

[Thanks, Bripod!]
