Turbine talks Rohan landscapes in latest LotRO dev diary

Jef Reahard

The latest Turbine developer diary is here, and of course it's focused squarely on Lord of the Rings Online's Riders of Rohan expansion. There's the usual mix of developer talking head shots interspersed with landscape footage of Rohan's rolling plains, rivers, and the dwellings of the region's horse-lords.

Famous locations from Tolkien's novels make an appearance too, including Amon Hen and Fangorn Forest. Turbine says that designing Rohan was more challenging than other areas of the game because Tolkien described the lands and their layout in a fair amount of detail. Check out the new screenshot gallery below, and don't forget to click past the cut for the dev diary video.
