New Mines of Moria video diary gives insight into world building


We get a double whammy today from Turbine, as they've just released five new screenshots and a new developer diary video for Lord of the Rings Online's Mines of Moria. The screenshots are all from Silvertine Lodes, one of the new areas releasing with the Mines of Moria expansion on Tuesday.

In the video diary, Art Director Harry Teasley and Lead World Designer Matt Elliott talk about how they built the Mines of Moria and how important it was to get everything just right, according to the lore. As they point out in the video, "Moria is really the inspiration for every dungeon adventure, in every game, since the advent of RPGs." Check out the new screenshots in the gallery below, and the video just after the cut.%Gallery-18340%
