time with a state-of-the-art online social experience,” said Jeffrey
Anderson, CEO of Turbine, Inc. “And now we want everyone to have the
opportunity to walk through the Shire, climb the Misty Mountains, fight
with their own fellowship in the War of the Ring and fully experience
the greatest fantasy of all time.”
