I’ve long been a fan of the LEGO games produced by Traveller’s Tales and their latest, based on the Lord Of The Rings doesn’t look to disappoint.
Slated to hit retail Fall 2012, LotR will have similar play controls that fans of TT games have come to expect. However according to Kotaku who had a demo of the game recently says to expect some minor changes:
It’s more of an adventure, more of a grand quest (with sidequests!), TT Games chief Jonathan Smith told me recently, after showing off a Mines of Moria cave troll battle. “In contrast to our other games, covering those three movies is an epic journey,” he said. “It really is a sense of an adventure rather than a series of stories. You build up your characters as you venture through the world of Middle-Earth.
LEGO LotR is based on all three Peter Jackson films, and the group at TT has clearly worked very closely with Jackson to ensure that fans get an authentic gaming experience. I’ll be sure to keep an eye on this as we get closer to the release date.
