I guess the last few Tolkien fans left holding the subs were not enough.
Depending on how the licensing works this might end up with how SWG finally had the plug pulled on it to make way for the Tortanic. This is going to be a train wreck like every other Amazon game.Amazon Games has announced a new agreement with Embracer Group subsidiary Middle-earth Enterprises to make a new Lord of the Rings MMO game.
The new massively-multiplayer-online game is being developed by New World developer Amazon Games Orange County, and will be released worldwide for Windows PC and unspecified consoles.
6Now that Embracer Group owns Middle-earth Enterprises, they’re naturally looking to cash in on the lucrative Tolkien properties as much as possible with new “motion pictures, video games, board games, merchandising, theme parks and stage productions.”
the team is determined to deliver an experience that is incredibly faithful to the rich fantasy lore established by Tolkien’s landmark novels
“The number-one thing about a property like this is that you have to be respectful and authentic,” Rich said. “When somebody is a fan of The Lord of the Rings and sits down and plays this game for the first time, they have to say, ‘This was crafted by a bunch of people who lived in this world just like I do in my head. They get it.’
“We understand this world. The people working on this team love these works,” he continued. “We’re right there with you; we’re fans, and we want to make a game that we, as fans, will enjoy.”
Forgot to mention this is supposed to be set in the war of the ring era, so the same time period.I'm hoping that isn't the case. Especially if it ends up being set during a different time period. Embracer should just license it like Warhammer. Anyone who has a decent pitch gets it.
I see the "updated visuals" have arrived.Our latest update celebrates individuality with additional character customization options for the Race of Men (humans) that let players express themselves in new ways. We want to make as many players feel represented in the game as possible, and we are introducing new character creation options for your face, hair, and body!
where the rohirim womenz at?
Update 36 "Gondor Renewed" released a couple weeks ago and it's pretty solid. New adventure zone in East Gondor set after the War of the Ring. They finally added the landscape difficulty system to all standard servers which makes questing a lot more enjoyable if you're outleveling the stuff you want to do too quickly.
"LOTRO Remastered" is a series of updates rather than a relaunch of the game
Umbar/Harad expansion announced for end of this year
totally not Corsair"Mariner" included with the Q4 expansion with some sort of sea shanty musical system being added to the game
Stat squish coming in Update 37, level squish in consideration
Several sources of lag being fixed in the next week or two
Reworks to Beorning and Guardian classes coming in next update
New modernized store coming in next update
New launcher with 2FA support
Improved 1440p/4K UI scaling is a priority and one of the biggest causes for negative reviews of the game in recent years
After scaling/UX reworks happen, they'll be focusing on lighting and shaders to improve the graphics of the game
Warsteed rework being discussed
River hobbits being added to the game at some point in the future
How is it that this game got away with woke pandering while Magic the Gathering and Rings of Power got shit on for it.
Because hardly anybody plays it and it failed completely to get traction because of the massive shit that RoP was and is.How is it that this game got away with woke pandering while Magic the Gathering and Rings of Power got shit on for it.
Post #388 in this thread on the previous page. What a glorious update. Truly enriched this game.What about negro trannism? Details?Does anyone know what is the status of a private server and if it's happening at all? Feel like playing lotro, but since the introduction of negro-tranism I'm not touching the official version even with a ten foot pole.
Just depends on how much it bothers you on principle of cringey corporate pandering. For whatever it's worth I haven't seen a single person using any of the new options.Post #388 in this thread on the previous page. What a glorious update.
