LOTR: War in the North pre-order challenge maps now on disc

Snowblind has announced a notable change in The Lord of the Rings: War in the North‘s pre-order bonus. Instead of only giving them to customers who put down money early, it’s been decided that the RPG’s challenge maps will instead be included on the game disc for no additional fee.

“After seeing the passion from the Community and Fans for this mode of play, we have decided to put them on disc for everyone to enjoy!” the studio writes on their blog (via).

It’s further noted: “Challenge maps are a great way to get bonus XP, loot, coins and achievements! Upon completing each of the challenge maps you will get a lump sum XP bonus on top of any bonuses you got along the way!”

War in the North is out this November; the 1st in NA, 4th in EU.
