  • Comic Con Interview with Jeff Anderson

    MMORPG.com has posted this interview today with the CEO of Turbine.

    When I brought up the word that most people shy away from...expansions, Jeff was excited to talk about what Turbine is planning. He said there are tons of opportunities for expansions. Words like Moria and Helms Deep were mentioned as ideas for upcoming areas and events for players to take part in. The biggest thing that Turbine is aiming for in the expansions is to bring more of the story to the players and allow them a more important part within them.

  • Ask Turbine #3: Interview with Jeffrey Steefel

    WarCry has posted the thrid in a series of Q & A's with the makers of Lord of the Rings Online.

    Mattlow: Where will the best loot in the game come from? Crafters or from monsters.

    Jeffrey Steefel: We want players to have lots of opportunities to get the fat loot. So, obviously, the mastery level, which is the highest tier of crafting, will come up with some of that loot that you're going to be able to buy at auction if the seller is nice or greedy enough. Also, in our raids and in the high-end stepped instances - where you're going to encounter some of the bigger bosses - and also in some areas of the Ettenmoors, which are the monster play areas, you're going to encounter some pretty hefty loot.

  • Lord of the Rings Online Beta Impressions

    IGN.com updated their site recently with a preview of Lord of the Rings Online. Keep reading to find their beta impressions.

    The explanation is quite simple. LOTR lore is infinitely more accessible to people who haven't read the biographies of the founders at Blizzard. There's no doubt that Blizzard's Warcraft series has built up an epic, detailed and loveable back-story - but it's only known by players of former Warcraft games.
