Live LOTRO interview at 4pm today!

Producer Steefel answering questions.

Turbine's Jeffrey Steefel, executive producer of The Lord of the Rings Online, will be live on Eurogamer.net this afternoon to answer your questions on the Tolkien-licensed MMO and its first expansion pack, Mines of Moria.

As with all our live interviews, you will be able to submit questions through a moderator, and Steefel's responses will be posted to the site as soon as they're done. You don't even need to refresh the page.

LOTRO has just seen the release of Mines of Moria, which takes players into the famous underground Dwarven civilisation, as well as adding two new character classes and Legendary items you can level alongside your character.

We've already reviewed it on Eurogamer MMO and found it to be splendid, in keeping with the high quality of the original LOTRO release, Shadows of Angmar.

As well as Moria, you might want to ask Steefel about the console version of LOTRO that Turbine is so obviously making.

"What makes our game great is the community of players and one of the best parts of my job is interacting with them," Steefel told us. "I'm really looking forward to chatting with Eurogamer's readers about the Mines of Moria."

There's plenty more to read at the Mines of Moria gamepage, ahead of the interview at 4pm this afternoon.
