We’d like to thank ParsonGotti and Joe F. for letting us know that there is a new LOTRO package for sale on Steam. It’s called The Lord of the Rings: Triple Pack and it is currently on sale for 50% off until Monday September 24th at 10AM Pacific Time.
- The package includes the following expansions:
- The cost for the pack is $39.99 (on-sale for $19.99)
- You must have The Lord of the Rings Online on Steam in order to play (This may not be entirely accurate, but the download of the base game is free).
I often hate going into an established MMO and wondering if I will have to purchase all the expansions one-by-one in order to access all the game’s content. To me it seems to be a lot of money to drop on a game at one time. (Especially since most of them rush you through most of the lower levels these days.) In fact, this is one of the reasons I haven’t picked up World of Warcraft since dropping it several expansions ago.
Considering that the base game for LOTRO is free and then I can purchase the majority of the expansions at once makes me pretty happy. And although I know that Turbine/Warner Brothers won’t be in any hurry to let Steam add it to the deal, I just hope that Riders of Rohan gets added to the package along the way; with little to no price increase.
UPDATE: This is also available in the LOTRO Market for the same sale price of $19.99. Thanks Laruadoc.
