All about The Lord of the Rings MMO !!
Although the MMO sounds like Amazon’s awaited Lord of the Rings TV series, portraying the time before Trilogy. However, Amazon denies the fact of the two being related in any way. The MMO was out in 2018 when Athlon games allianced with Middle Earth enterprise. Yet Amazon wasn’t up at that time. Well, as far as the announcement by now, game details are yet to come.
Nevertheless, the MMO team will have, the developers from Amazon’s other MMO, New World, which is still in the making. New World is a Sandbox MMO and hopefully is system driven.
