Saddle up, folks! Lord of the Rings Online launches the closed beta of its latest expansion, Riders of Rohan, later today. From 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. EDT tonight, testers will have the chance to explore the new land and try out the new quests. Unfortunately, the new mounted combat system isn't slated to be tested until the beta event happening on July 20th. Turbine has, however, just released the first video showcasing this combat feature that will allow players to remain on their steeds as they fight their foes.
For a taste of the action while waiting, watch the video after the break.
