*TURBINE releases BOOK 9: SHORES OF EVENDIM FOR THE LORD OF THE RINGS
ONLINE^(TM)*


*WESTWOOD, MA -- June 13, 2007* - Today, Turbine, Inc. released the
first free update for subscribers to *The Lord of the Rings Online^(TM):
Shadows of Angmar^(TM)*. *Book 9:* *Shores of Evendim, *the first of
many planned free updates to the world of Middle-earth, introduces an
entirely new landscape region, over 100 additional quests, the battle
for Helegrod raid, nine new monsters and major enhancements to monster
play and the music system.

As the Fellowship prepares to leave Rivendell, Aragorn must re-forge
Narsil, the Sword of Elendil. Gandalf has asked for help in Aragorn's
search of the lands of Evendim for an ancient jewel that once belonged
in the sword's hilt. This powerful relic must be recovered before the
Dark Lord Sauron finds it. Players are challenged to secure the
valuables of the abandoned city, defy Angmar's encroaching grip on
Annúminas, and aid Aragorn in his quest to re-forge Narsil.

Beginning today, heroes can adventure to the *Shores of Evendim* in *The
Lord of the Rings Online*.

*The Lord of the Rings Online* delivers an interactive experience
brimming with life and filled with the familiar people, places and
monsters from the most beloved fantasy adventure of all time. From the
quaint surroundings of the Shire to Angmar, the vile kingdom of the
Witch-king, players will experience the world of Middle-earth as never
before. *The Lord of the Rings Online* is now available for purchase at
major retailers across North America and Europe. For more information
