LoTRO Lord of the Rings Online Alpha Test
Alpha tests are usually entirely in house affairs to test an incomplete game design. This phase of testing us usually missing minor decorative graphics and some important game components. Turbine has already finished the Alpha Test Phase of the game, and moved into Beta Testing.
The Lord of the Rings Online Alpha Test was open to a few players who had signed up for the Beta Test. Reports from those players, which can be found in the Alpha Player Journals on Turbine’s main Lord of the Rings Online website, describe a remarkably smooth experience. They describe a game with exception graphics and fun game mechanics.
