New LotR title for the 360, PS3, DS and PC.
Pandemic Studios announced that it has begun developing The Lord of the Ring: Conquest for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, and the PC. It is currently slated for a fall 2008 release.
“Our Pandemic Studios creative teams have years of expertise bringing giant battlefields to life,” says Andrew Goldman, Pandemic Studios co-founder and general manager.
“We’ve always wanted to harness our experience in a fantasy universe with warriors, archers, mages and castle sieges. Of course, there is truly no better fantasy world to recreate than the enormity of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ realm.”
Conquest is described as an “action packed game” which will allow players to engage in epic battles while playing as either the heroes of middle Earth, or its various foes under the command of Sauron.
