The fifth expansion is set to debut in Fall 2013.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that a fifth expansion to its Lord of the Rings Online free-to-play MMORPG , Helm's Deep, is slated for release this Fall. The new expansion stretches the story into the western plans of Rohan where players will battle for direct control of Helm's Deep, introducing 10 new levels and advancing the level cap from 85 to 95 in the process.

"With Helm’s Deep, we’re bringing the War of the Ring to players on a monumental scale," said Kate Paiz , Executive Producer of The Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine. "Our team is thrilled to create another iconic moment in Middle-earth, and put players in the center of the action."

Helm's Deep will also include new skills and completely updated class specializations. Gamers will get to explore new landscapes, engage in both mounted and unmounted combat, and will encounter familiar characters such as Aragorn, Éowyn, and Éomer.
