De gekte rondom Lord of the Rings weet maar niet van ophouden. Het is bekend geworden dat Tribune Entertainment Software bezig is aan de ontwikkeling van een Lord of the Rings MMORPG. Tribune is o.a. bekend van Asheron's Call 1 en 2. -> www.gamerszone.nl <-
Het spel zal Middle-earth online gaan heten. Er zullen verschillende rassen bespeelbaar zijn zoals de Elven, Orcs en de Mensen.
Finally, Asheron's Call's own Turbine Entertainment is working on the genre that almost seems to be an old standby at this point--another massively multiplayer online game. Middle-Earth Online sets itself during the fellowship's conflict with Sauron, and will entail Men, Dwarves, Elves and Hobbits working together in small and large groups, where they will explore the world, build homes and craft Mithril Swords, or just get drunk and sing. A large number of resources will enable you to create more powerful weapons and armors, and even food or decorative items. High-end crafters can create the most interesting items in the game.
You'll undergo the usual activity of creating and developing a character and choosing its specialties, but, as in Asheron's Call 2, nothing is ironclad. You'll be able to reevaluate your decisions as the game progresses. For short-term adventures you may have up to nine characters in your party or "fellowship," and their will be Kinships (think "guilds"), and online marriages and adooption. Turbines track record indicates that you can probably expect a solid product, but at this writting, it looks like there's nothing perticularly new. But since this, too, is a 2004 product, don't count on finding out anytime soon."
Helaas moeten we nog wel erg lang wachten op dit spel. Het staat gepland op 2004. We houden je op de hoogte!
