I haven't been spending a lot of time on my LOTRO character of late, but I like to pop in when there is new content. Today, the summer festival started, so I'm going to have to take a look at the new features that will be available in the game for a limited time:

The annual returns from through with summer-themed games, quests, dances, and more! Here's a preview of what you can do during the festivities:

  • The war of the beer-loving factions rages as the Ale Association and Inn League find new ways to compete
  • Try your hand at the horse races to win the new Pale Golden Summer Steed!
  • Bet on your favorite racing dwarf or hobbit at the Taste of Hobbiton or the Keg Race of Thorin's Hall!
  • Visit local ponds and lakes to catch rare summer fish for unique festival rewards!

I dont' see myself keeping my paid subscription when it goes free to play, but I can see myself playing now and again, at least until The Old Republic comes out.
