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!
