Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar (PC) - Interview with Exec Producer Jeffrey Steefel

If Turbine get this game wrong then it will be a different kind of firing squad they face. But for now, they are happy to go face to face with the guys at Firing Squad, the web site, and discuss the latest happenings in the development of Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar.

Our goal is to create the most complete and authentic realization of Middle-earth. The books serve as our guide as we create this rich, immersive experience that allows players to experience life in the Third Age after Frodo leaves the Shire. While we are sticking very close to the books, the game isn’t about replaying the story, LOTRO is about creating your own adventure within the world that Tolkien created. Players will travel to many celebrated landmarks from the books including Rivendell, Weathertop and Bree, and interact with famous characters such as Gandalf, Gimli and Strider. In addition to the creatures and places in the books, we also have the ability to expand on these areas and create our own content. So you’ll not only fight Orcs and Trolls, but you’ll also encounter new creatures such as the dangerous Rogmul.
