To celebrate the launch of The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, Turbine has partnered with GameStop to host “Midnight Madness” launch events across the United States.

Fans will be lining up to be among the first to pick up a copy of the game, meet members of the development team, and have a chance to win signed posters, pre-paid game cards and exclusive event t-shirts. In addition, special prizes will be awarded at each location to the three players who wear the best “The Lord of the Rings” themed costumes.

Events will be held at select GameStop stores in 5 cities across the country (Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle) to kick-off the availability of this highly anticipated MMO from Turbine and Midway Games. Midnight Madness starts at 11:00PM on April 23rd and runs through midnight.
