|The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan|
|Release date||15 October 2012|
The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan is the fourth expansion of The Lord of the Rings Online. It includes three new regions and features mounted combat, as well as smaller additions like an increase of the level cap from 75 to 85. The game was released on October 15, 2012.
The game story focuses on the Riders of Rohan, the Breaking of the Fellowship and Éomer's fight against the Orcs and Uruks who invade eastern Rohan. The Riders of Rohan expansion continues the Epic Quest storyline with books 7, 8 and 9 of Allies of the King. These books team the player with a motley crew consisting of an exiled Rohir, a Dunlending woman and an Elf of Lothlorien.
Riders of Rohan adds one big zone and two smaller zones to the game world:
 Mounted Combat
Riders of Rohan allows players to fight from horseback for the first time. Early quests in The Wold of East Rohan give players access to a War-steed, a special breed of horse trained for combat. Players can learn special attacks and maneuvers for their War-steeds and their mounts level up with experience just as the players do. War-steeds can be ridden in most game regions but mounted combat options are only available in Rohan.
