    Um...If it's posted by Turbine, it's hardly a "leak".

    How true. Almost as if it were posted as a joke

    I only hope that Helm's Deeps expansion will not be so tiny like this image.

    Hrm, I think if I squint I can make out some dwarves, elves and hobbitses fighting there in the smoke in Helm's Deep. Lorebreak, lorebreak!

    If the pic is showing the Hornburg, shouldn't that wall be facing THE OTHER side?

    The burg is to the right, while the wall extends from it to the left, isn't it?

    I'm no expert, but...

    The image is actually about 1600 x 1000. You get one corner of it today. We'll fill the entire thing in as we go. Another portion of it will be revealed on Monday.

    release date Sapience? or atleast pre-order date, im going to guess 1st September for pre-orders, it looks like 8 more days worth of images to be revealed on that art work, and thats 8 days until the 1st of September, seems to me that the ends will meet then

    At least 11 more by my estimate, assuming the image sections are roughly the same size. So it'll be fully revealed the week of September 9? (Counting weekdays, not weekends.) Great lead-up to pre-orders, if that's their plan.

    I knew you guys would be trying to guess things based on the sized of the first revealed space. That's why they're different sizes and shapes.

    Also, so no one gets disappointed, we'll only be releasing images on Week days, not on Saturdays or Sundays.

    I dont consider materials posted directly by Turbine as promotional materials to be leaks. That said. I hope the players testing Helms-Deep is off to a rousing start. *fires fireworks off in the general direction of the testers view*

    Hmm there is a US holiday in a little more than a week. Guessing no reveal that day either. ;-)

    Apparently, there are two links floating around for actual leaked Helm's Deep game maps, though they are in an unfinished state. I'm not going to post those links here, but can we expect an official reply regarding this from the devs? Maybe this is what the OP was actually referring to...?

    For clarity, the OP was referring to the (as yet incomplete) set of images the OP linked to

    Glad to see more information being released. This is a good and different way to release images.

    It's concept art, so won't end up looking exactly the same.

    Thanks Turbine, even tho the picture is small, hehe. Hopefully when it is fully revealed we can pre-order it!

    This just looks like concept art - not an actual screenshot. Hmmm, there's plenty of Helm's Deep concept art all over the interwebs already. Maybe (hopefully) the more of the image that's revealed, the more interesting it will prove to be. But if it's really just concept art then... meh.

    I am happy, however, that Turbine is finally starting to give us some Helm's Deep info. I wish they would release it on their official website though instead of only on social media.

    I'd have expected something more like a panoramic screenshot as well. But that could reveal a bit too much. Also, if there's still tweaks being done and the final product doesn't look exactly like a preview screenshot some people might get pissed, especially in the current paranoid climate regarding pre-release info.

    So in the end concept art is the safest bet.

    I'd seen the maps before on their own but I hadn't realized it was that huge.

    A "mature customer" isn't going to whine about teaser information, IMO. It's done all the time, in all sorts of media.

    .
    Exactly. I remember years ago when actual screenshots of Isengard were released. People were freaking out because they thought it was incredibly small and boring. (And partially because it didn't look like in the movies)

    And wow, West Rohan is a lot bigger than East Rohan. Not to mention its more iconic by featuring both Edoras, Helm's Deep, and the Paths of the Dead, so I can't blame them for taking so long with releasing information. And something tells me that it is not a legitimate leak, because it looks a lot like the unanimated early beta map that we saw in RoR beta last year

    Be sure to let us know when it's done then.
