LOTRO: More Impressions

Posted Fri, Jan 12, 2007 by LadySirse

More Impressions from CES

FiringSquad has posted another look at Lord of the Rings Online based on their impressions from CES.

The demo at CES was fairly subdued; we didn't get to see anything like combat; it was basically just seeing a pre-created character move through the world of Middle Earth (which we will told during our demo is about 30,000 square miles of game space which only a portion will be available to play at the game's launch). The game is looking about as sharp as we have seen it in past trade show with an art style that takes its inspiration from the various fantasy illustrations for the Rings books rather than the film version. You will still recognize various settings from the books, from Hobbiton in the Shire to Tom Bombadil's house (which is up on top of a hill overlooking a waterfall just like the books describe it).

LotRO's new class comes late to the party, but it is certainly an interesting choice.
