Unless money or time is not an issue (or you write about games for a living), you have quite a decision to make this week. World of Warcraft's second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, has released yesterday. Lord of the Rings Online's first expansion, Mines of Moria, is releasing this Tuesday. They both promise to be revolutionary expansions, and the fact that their launch dates are within a week of each other most likely means that you won't be playing both. Well, Massively is here to help bridge that gap a bit.
While both games are considered high fantasy, and many of the features of both games could be considered very similar, actually comparing the two is a whole different story. In this feature article, they're going to break down and compare the two games and what they have to offer. Whether you're a LotRO fan who makes a little cross with your fingers every time someone mentions WoW, or you're a WoW player who thinks "Hobits r dum!", we'll let you know what you would have to look forward to in either game and their new expansions.
