Turbine has announced a distribution agrement with NHN Corporation to bring The Lord of the Rings Online to Korea.

Under terms of the agreement, Turbine will work with Korean Internet company NHN to localise the game for the Korean market.

"The Lord of the Rings is a powerful franchise with global appeal, and we are committed to bringing the game to fans around the world," said Jim Crowley, president and CEO of Turbine.

"NHN is a powerful force in the Korean gaming market and we are very excited to work with them to bring The Lord of the Rings Online to Korea next year."

The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar was recently honoured as the 2007 PC Game of the Year at the 25th Annual Golden Joystick Awards, and currently operates in North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan.

"The Lord of the Rings Online will redefine the MMORPG genre in Korea, with amazing graphics and high-quality game content, along with a game system that Korean gamers are familiar with," said Kim Chang-Keun, director of the publishing division of NHN.

"We expect the title will be a strong contender in the world-class Korean online game market, giving it a global competitive edge."
