A new expansion is being prepared for the Lord of the Rings: The Battle For Middle Earth II. An Electronic Arts employee has confirmed a rumor that the company is making an expansion-pack follow-up to The Battle for Middle-earth II--and that EA had unveiled it at the recently ended 2006 San Diego Comic-Con.
Two days ago, a forum post on Gamereplays.org cited a report from someone claiming to have been present at EA's Comic-Con presentation, where the company apparently unwrapped an expanion pack to its recently released strategy game The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth II. The report pegged the add-on's title to be "The Life of the Witch-king."
But before reader comments could spiral out of control, Electronic Arts community manager and developer Aaron Kaufman intervened to clear up the confusion.

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli drops knowledge along with a new DX10 video. Check in for all the latest.
Crysis is obviously one of the biggest games on the PC radar this year. It's not hard to see why. From what's been shown of the game so far, and the DX10 video, the game looks gorgeous. From lush tropical environments to frozen wastes, soldiers in fatigues to outlandish, monolithic monstrosities, the environments and enemy designs in Crysis are strikingly realistic and instantly appealing.
In addition to its visuals, Crysis seems to be offering gameplay that combines the PC version of Far Cry with the feral powers present in the console-only Far Cry Instincts. In other words, the game looks to combine large outdoor battle arenas with brutal up-close melee abilities. Crysis' nano suit gives players the ability to toss around environmental objects like barrels, grab and fling enemies, as well as run at superhuman speeds, or bolster armor. Combining these abilities with a variety of firearms and vehicles is a tantalizing gaming prospect, something we all want to know more about.
IGN recently caught up with Crytek's CEO Cevat Yerli to get some insight into the game's development and features.
