The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is set during The Fellowship of the Ring after Frodo and company leave The Shire. Players are able to meet the characters from Tolkien's story, including some of the Fellowship. There are four playable races with seven different classes.
In the initial release, only the following regions of Middle Earth are playable: Eriador including Blue Mountains, the Shire (Old Forest included), South Downs (located east of the Old Forest and south of Bree), Breeland, North Downs (Fornost included in this area), Trollshaws (the forests surrounding Rivendell) and Angmar. The player is even able to travel into the ghostly Barrow Downs, an old set of hills inhabited by the spirits of dead soldiers. Expansion packs will follow the journey of the Ringbearer: Rhovanion, Rohan, Gondor, and Mordor.
