08-06-2003, 12:08 AM
I'm perhaps one of the very few gamers in the world whose really crazy about this game. Any other fans please tell me when this game will be released, most previews I've read say next year, but the recent preview,Gamespy (http://www.gamespy.com/previews/august03/wotrpc/index2.shtml) , said that it's November, can anyone confirm?

Oh, by the way, any good fansites for this game?

Seems to me that nobody likes this game...(Begins to sob:crybaby: )

I don't even know what it is. :¬:

I don't blame you, it's not as popular as first expected. You can check the Preview for full info, but here's some basics:

a)It's a Real-Time Strategy game about The Lord of the Rings, featuring 2 sides, good and evil

b)It's developed by Liquid Entertainment, who brought us the great but terribly underrated Battle Realms.

c)It features stuuf like terrain strategy, unit levels, battles from the books and more.

They've got it listed as November as well. At least I think that's the game you're talking about...

Yeah, I guess it's November then, ActionTrip said so, too. Thanks, Datheus.

I looking forward to it :D ... of course I might not buy it if I am short of funds. ;)

I love anything LOTR, but this. Not because of anything big except. I hate strategy games. Mostly because I suck at them. But I do wanna get ROTK on PC when it comes out, as i never played the other games.

meh, one of the best Neverwinter Nights servers(multi servers rather) run a LOTR MOD that is incredible. www.stormplay.org

I take it back, I didnt notice RTS. I looked at gamespy screenies...looks almost identical to Warcraft 3, didnt have anything in particular that caught my eye, I saw a Balrog though. I probably wont buy it, but I am sure ill get it eventually, but like I said I wont buy it .;)

Doesn't look like WCIII to me, more of Battle Realms. That is, if you've played Battle Realms

deffinition for "blah" RTS = Empire Earth...reason being is...everything was already done from all the AoE series. Cept its just in 3D:rolleyes:

My old roomate had Battle Realms, and frankly I think it looks like WCIII so...*do the math*:D
