Latest Beta Journals – Starting Zones

The latest installations of the Beta Journals are up with the focus on the newly updated New Player Experience. I’ve always enjoyed the intros as I thought they did a pretty good job of explaining things as well as getting you into your storyline and role.  With the tweaks in the UI we’ve heard about it probably is good to tweak the intro as well.  Plus with the influx of new folks it makes sense to not only introduce our role but bring some of the other main characters in play earlier.  Since many decide it they like the game very quickly it is important for these intros to be fun, helpful, and visually stunning so I’m perfectly fine with Turbine spending resources to update them.  You can get a good feel for some of the tweaks by looking at the new screenshots that were posted over on a Casual Stroll to Mordor.  The one with the Black Rider almost makes me want to roll a hobbit 😉

  1. It is good they changed the starter areas. Good to see Strider has a cameo in one of them.

    • Yeah it was nice to see Strider, and I’m really intrigued by the Hobbit one as that sounds really interesting. I’ll probably roll a hobbit somewhere to check it out.
