Thursday, August 21, 2008

Pandemic Studios is developing a Lord of the Rings game similar to Star Wars:Battlefront. It is called Lord of the Rings Conquest. They're working off of EA's LotR license, which means they got to use a bunch of stuff from the movies.

There will be good and evil campaigns, and playable classes include warriors, archers, and mages, so obviously it's not exactly going to be canon.

See the official page here. The game is slated to come out by the end of the year.

There will be three versions available: a "Complete edition" version containing copies of Shadows of Angmar (the original game) as well as the expansion, a "Collector's Edition" containing that and more, and a digital download version. For more information, see Turbine's offical announcement

Hellgate:London is out!

This game is created by Flagship Studios, a company founded by a group of former Blizzard employees who worked on the Diablo series. They've dubbed this game a "spiritual successor" of the Diablo series, but as Blizzard holds the copyright on the Diablo franchise, this is not officially a Diablo sequel.

Pallando has purchased this game already (and reminded me to let you all know it's out :})

Letter from Pallando concerning Eve:


For an unfortunate reason, I will need to suspend funding for my second Eve-Online account, which holds the Pallando Luineistar character. As the only other member is Menelvagor, who is inactive, this will leave the branch without anyone to run the corporation. I will still be somewhat active on Debes Sparre, and will keep the mailing list and chat channel manned for what it's worth. My offer of a free month will not be available on demand, but still extant. The offer for 6 months runs out on the 4th.
