Engage into an epic journey and explore the lands of Middle-Earth in Lord of the Rings Online, a free-to-play, massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed by Standing Stone Games and published by Daybreak Game Company, released in 2007. Lord of the Rings Online's environment is based on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Just like the standard MMO format, this game allows its players to control an avatar and interacts with the environment as well as the non-player characters or NPCs. Choose your character from 4 races, nine classes, ten professions, and seven vocations — each with different skills, titles, and traits. You can also customize the physical appearance of your avatar to make it stand out. The game allows its players to create their gear. Design and customize your own legendary weapons just like Bilbo's Sting or Gandalf's Glamdring! Begin your adventure with friends or play alongside AI-controlled soldiers in solo or co-op game modes. Immerse yourself inside the legendary world of Middle-Earth and visit famous locations including the Shire, the Mines of Moria, and Lothlórien. Bring your Lord of the Rings fantasy to life and experience Middle-Earth as you've never been before. Lord of the Rings Online is available for free on Windows and Mac.
