Lord of the Rings Online: Hands-On Preview
WarCry had a chance to get some hands on time with Lord of the Rings Online. Keep reading to see what they have to say about this upcoming MMO.
The game looks great. However this comes with a price, and that is right now textures will kill your machine if you don't have at least 2GB of RAM. If not, I'd suggest reducing texture detail to Medium or Low. Since the game is still in Beta, I'd expect that this will get addressed before launch. The amount of detail in the environment from waving fields of flora to the water is amazing though. Character and creature models are well done, especially capes, which would give a certain superhero MMO a run for its money.
