Warner Bros and Turbine today announced The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan, an expansion to the popular MMORPG, set for release some time this autumn.

Kate Paiz, Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine, said: "Riders of Rohan is our biggest expansion yet, and raises the bar technically and artistically much like Mines of Moria did in 2008. We're introducing the largest area we've ever built and a combat system unlike anything that has been built before in MMOs."

"We're excited for players to be able to continue the epic story as players immerse themselves in Rohirrim culture and support King Théoden himself as they strive to keep the eyes of Mordor distracted from the Ringbearer's task."

New features include the introduction of Mounted Combat, a landscape three times the size of Moria and a level cap increase to 85.

There are three different limited editions. The official spiel for each is below.
