LEGO Lord Of The Rings Release Date Confirmed

Warner Bros and TT Games have confirmed just when we can expect their new Middle-Earth LEGO adventure to hit stores this Autumn! (3DS, LEGO Lord of the Rings, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Never mind the release date , can we just have a proper Vita/3ds versions and not DS ports please.

Good luck.. the PSP got DS ports too even though it could do the LEGO games (eg, LEGO Star Wars II, Lego Indy 1 and Batman 1 - everything after that was a POS DS port)

I agree that it's particularly annoying to see the PlayStation Vita handed what many see to be quite a mediocre offering each time. LEGO Batman 2 was much the same, and the Vita has proved with titles like Golden Abyss and Rayman Origins that it can run at least basic versions of fully-fledged PS3/360 games, so why it hasn't yet got a 'full' LEGO game is beyond me. Here's hoping that the LOTR version can at least somewhat buck this trend.

I still don't understand why everyone hated LEGO: Harry Potter on Vita. It looks just as good as the PS3/360 version. It may have been a port of the PSP version, but it looks MUCH better than the PSP version. I don't know how, but it does. The same goes for LEGO: Batman 2. It looks really good, yet reviewers trashed the graphics. It definitely looks better than the 3DS version, as well.

I'm still waiting for that Elder Scrolls style LotR RPG...

That could be... really cool, so long as they don't make it into a half-assed "side story" like recent games, or set it in a different era. Well, okay, Silmarillion open-world would be all kinds of aweseome, but...

Imagine.

War of the Ring setting. Open world game. You can make any character you want of any race. You can even be a gollum-like creature or an Uruk-hai or whatever. Two main quests (good/evil). To start the one, you join up with Saruman at Isengard... branches into Surman-wins and Sauron-wins paths. To start the other, Rivendell. The Council of Elrond. You get the ring. Branches so that you either follow Aragorn and destroy the ring through force with a bunch of allies... or you have to sneak in to Mordor and get to Mt Doom without being captured. No allies, big, huge open-world stealth segments...

....

Gah, why'd you have to bring up something that aswesome!

You just described the exact game I've been waiting for since the movies came out! Imagine what could have been if the rights hadn't gone to EA of all companies, but Bethesda instead...

However, there is a team of incredibly ambitious modders recreating Middle Earth in its entirety using the Skyrim engine. The size of the map is about 10 times the size of the entire Skyrim map, so it will be mindblowing if they manage to finish it. And it's not just the landmass of Middle Earth that's being created, they are basically creating that very game you just described :)

Check it out! Only downside is, you won't be able to play as a bad guy ;)

Words cannot describe how amazing this game will be.
