There are news that bring smiles, especially when the MMORPG is a genre that we love for a long time. The information this time relates to The Lord of the Rings Online. Explanations.
The Lord of the Rings Online is an MMORPG which is all the same 15 years old now, more precisely the game opened its servers on April 24, 2007. And the good news for the most loyal and the diehards is that the game is still good alive. Indeed the title has just reached its highest peak of players on Steam in ten years.
A peak of players for The Lord of the Rings
So obviously compared to a recent big AAA game, this may seem ridiculous but we still note the connection of 3755 players at the same time. The game had not had such a record on the Valve platform since 2012, when the said game was launched on Steam. Note also that the Steam community obviously does not represent all players, but it is a good indicator and a way to get a rough idea of the success of a game.
Several factors ?
This success can be explained by several factors. First of all the fifteenth anniversary update which brings a little freshness to the game. Secondly, the whole adventure is free until the content concerning Helm’s Deep. Finally, we can note a “Lord of the Rings” effect, in the sense that for some time there has been a renewed interest in Tolkien’s universe, in particular thanks to marketing around the Amazon series.
In any case, this is good news for the game, which is a good way to immerse yourself in this universe in addition to books and films on the subject.
