LOTRO: Jeffrey Steefel Talks With CGO

Posted Tue, Jul 11, 2006 by LadySirse

Storyline and Playable Races Discussed

CGOnline.com has posted an interview with Jeffery Steefel. Executive Producer of Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, today.

What is it like working on such a popular franchise and bringing it to an ever-expanding genre? What materials have you studied for the Middle-Earth experience?

Working with a franchise like The Lord of the Rings is an incredible opportunity. We’ve dedicated ourselves to re-creating Middle-earth as faithfully as possible within the confines of a massively-multiplayer game. The opportunity to develop a persistent online world based on Middle-earth is exciting and challenging; everything is carefully researched before it makes it into the game.

Of course, the art team has also done a tremendous amount of research including wearing a full suit of armor and visits to the archery range down the street to make sure our hunters hold their bows properly!

Keep reading to find out more in this two part interview. Don't forget to stay tuned to LOTRO Ten Ton Hammer for all your latest news, interviews and information surrounding this much anticipated game!
