A new batch of screenshots has been unveiled for Lord of the Rings Online's upcoming expansion, Riders of Rohan!
Enemies bearing the sign of the White Hand serve Saruman the Betrayer, who commands them from his stronghold of Isengard. The most dangerous are the mighty Uruk-hai, which the wizard breeds in the deep pits beneath the tower of Orthanc.
The Goblins and Uruks that carry the mark of the Great Eye are servants of Sauron. Amongst the cruelest and most vicious foes to be found upon the plains, these servants of Mordor bear no love for the White Hand. They would gladly turn on them if not for their orders.
Evil men of Rhûn driven back across the Great River centuries ago by the might of the Rohirrim, the Easterlings have returned to wreak revenge on the Horse-lords. Fearless and formidable warriors, they count among their number cruel sorcerers who worship powers unknown.
