GameTap writes: "If you've ever thought that Sauron's hordes should have conquered Middle-earth, or that the Balrog should have wiped the cave floor with Gandalf, or even that Sam and Frodo's relationship seemed a little "strange," you're in luck. Pandemic Studios in partnership with New Line Cinema is working on The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, where players will be able to command Sauron's evil army as well as the heroic forces of Middle-earth.
The game's set in the Lord of the Rings universe of J.R.R. Tolkien as depicted by the Academy Award-winning films. Although exact features have yet to be revealed, Lord of the Rings: Conquest is the project of the same Pandemic Studios team behind Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II."
