Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan trailer introduces mounted combat

The fourth expansion pack for Lord of the Rings Online, Turbine's highly successful F2P MMO, is coming soon and they've released this new trailer to introduce one of the biggest new additions to the gameplay, mounted combat.

The trailer shows heroes squaring off against what appear to be the previously announced "warbands", packs of elite monsters that roam the countryside hunting players down. Riders of Rohan has just entered a closed beta period, and is nearing its final release in September 2012.
