LOTR movies are my favorite of all time, so I am hoping a proper dark LOTR game would show up, and I hope that game is this one.

Can't wait for some good gameplay footage :)

Bit strange that this particular trailer has been released to the general public...

The reason it's entitled 'A Council of the North' is because that refers to a small group of selected members on their website who get special access to exclusive content - I happen to be one of these members! - as well as being able to interact directly with the developers. This trailer was meant to be just for them, but I guess they decided to release it publicly for some reason?

Anyway, looks promising.

I'm not reading too much into this.

The last LOTR game that came out, I followed for a year, and dreamed of when back in 2005. It turned out to be LOTR Conquest: the game that I can't even sell because it's worth about five pence, and the game that disappointed me so much I went off LOTR for quite a while.

I'm going to wait for a review for it before I even think of buying it. That said, it looks quite good.

About the game


What's up?

    GriftGFX I'm not saying it's impossible that another developer would want to do it and would do it justice. That's just rarely the case when a franchise changes hands. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And some of them work at Arkane, so I guess that makes sense. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And that's a pretty baseless statement. Just paging through Mobygames, most of the Half Life 2 staff still works at Valve. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They've lost SOME of their key staff. Staff that they can replace as easily as farming out the game to some third party. (1 Hour ago)

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog so why does it matter if they make the next one or not? it's like people being excited about rare making a new perfect dark when the people who made perfect dark 1 on the N64 are long gone. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and the mention of brands being popular is ironic seeing as that's all dev studio's are. valve today is nothing like valve when half life was being made. they've lost all of their key staff. (2 Hours ago)
