Trailer of LOTR: Conquest

Trailer of LOTR: Conquest

Pandemic is on a roll ! Here comes the first trailer - entirely in-engine - of Lord of the Rings: Conquest. Developed by the creators of the Star Wars Battlefront series, Conquest should offer the same type of gameplay in Middle-Earth. From what we see, it looks like we'll be able to play as Ents, or even Balrogs. Sounds good ! The game is planned to be released this fall on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.

Too bad this is in-engine and not in-game.

I hope they have a good combat system in place.

Would have preferred SW Battlefront 3 but this looks ok I guess

Hmm, looked to me like there were quite a few shots there that were from in-game...

I think you mean part 4. Part 3 came out on the PSP. But I'd prefer it if they try a different story like this rather than just sticking with something safe.

That's the only thing I can think about when I hear about this game, I really wish it was BF3...

If you had seen GTTV, you would know that all of that footage is in-game.

This is officially one of my most wanted titles this year, and not just because i'm a LOTR geek either. ;)

Any information on how many people can fight (online) on a battle field simultaniously in this game?
Commented on 2008-06-24 12:58:28
it will be 8 v 8 online, plus around 150 AI units.

There were surely ingame-sequences in the trailer. But it looks weird to me. Don't know why. Not interessed so far. Maybe when it will be shown at the upcoming E3, I might have another look at it and hopefully it will become interesting.

Like I said, if you watched the GTTV special on it, you would know that all of what was in the trailer is in-game. That's because they showed footage on GTTV and it looks exactly the same as in the trailer.

So hyped for this game. :D

Anyone who has a 360 with live and is planning to get this: We shall burn the Shire together!

And then after, you can be Frodo and I will beat you senseless as a Ringwraith. (:

Well, if you ever change your mind and buy the PC version, let me know, I'll be playing online there.

I don't know guys, this looks like a really stellar game. I mean, who doesn't want to play in huge battle scenes in Middle Earth?

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: i've been on about 7 types of anti depressants in the last 5 years. lol. it's anecdotal, but they work. they just usually come with some shitty side effect. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Now with that said.. there's no cure. Most of these disorders are poorly understood, as is brain chemistry. And people like Chris Cornell were being treated. But results vary. Better than a sugar pill (5 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: that's why i said "can" there are instances of people having better results from a placebo than that of legit medication. i never said it was a replacement for it though. (5 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Medicine is heavily skewed towards evidence here. We make pharmaceutical companies jump through hoops to prove efficacy and safety. *Not* with perfect results.. but it's pretty good. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's plenty of scientific evidence that various psychoactive drugs are more effective than a placebo. They wouldn't pass the rigorous approval process in the USA without said evidence. (5 Hours ago)
