LOTR: Conquest announced

LOTR: Conquest announced

EA today announced Lord of the Rings: Conquest, from the same team at Pandemic Studios that did the Star Wars: Battlefront series. I loved those games and it's sad to see them letting go of that universe, but it will be interesting to see how they will make this work based on LOTR. More info and the first images can be found inside, while the first gameplay footage will be aired at the end of June.

Well, I love LOTR more than most.

Therefore, i'll at the very least be keeping an eye on this one.

This could be interesting, although I hope they don't keep the Battlefront style. It was good, but didn't feel superb. Keeping my eye on it

Looks and sounds great. I hope the EA hate doesn't rush in too fast in this topic.

I loved both battlefronts and i would like to see how that kind of gameplay works on LOTR.
allthought,... 16 players online that's not really gone give you the feeling of an epic fight.

Looks promissing, would be cool to hack and slush through all the NPCs and then epic fights vs other players. So they better get the gameplay right :P

Looks pretty good and it's something I'm more excited about rather than another Star Wars game, although like stated, 16 players wouldn't cut it for a LOTR style battle.

I'm sure that it's sixteen players in a commander-like position with tons of other NPC's. Wouldn't make sense if it was done otherwise.

    Melmoth @Tiz: Most big games were larger than what a standard CD-ROM disc could store, so it wasn't unusual that pirated games were lacking audio tracks or movies. (5 Hours ago)

    Melmoth @Tiz: Sega used a proprietary GD-ROM format (about 1GB discs) for storage. It did not stop piracy though as you with a bootdisc could start cd-r copies without the need to hard mod the console. (5 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (8 Hours ago)
