The European beta of Turbine's Lord of the Rings MMORPG Shadows of Angmar will go live tomorrow, 13th January, the developer along with publisher Codemasters announced this morning.

You can sign up on the official website, and if you get involved this weekend you'll be part of the game's first stress test, described as a "major milestone" by producer Jim Brown.

"For the first time we will be allowing tens of thousands of people to join the game and test every aspect to the absolute limit," he explained. "By introducing a great number of new players to the beta, we will be able to gather valuable information on performance of our hardware."

Overall they want over 200,000 to have a crack on Shadows of Angmar before the game launches this spring, and to that end we're also told that beta accounts turned on during the stress test will remain active throughout the beta programme. So, head over to www.lotro-europe.com for more info.
