Your family was murdered? Wow, what a unique setup for a story. Never seen this before

Posted by Slax

This could be good, right?

Also, how many times can one man wake up in a single trailer?

Posted by CongruentPotato

Video game protagonists should probably stop having families, they're just going to get murdered. I will say I'm digging the voice acting, though.

Oh My Lord is that actually Troy Baker taking the lead in yet another game?.. Sounds awfully familiar to Baker's upper-class English voice anywhoo.

^ Was thinking the same thing. Such a cliche. Even so this does look promising.

God of War, Middle-Earth edition?

Haven't I heard this name as like 5 different game titles by now?

I know absolutely nothing about this game, and this is an all CG trailer, and it's coming out in roughly 6 months? Hell I'll pre-order right now!

I wonder if it still plays exactly like assassins creed or if they switched up those animations.

@slax: I think the ideas that he keeps coming back after he dies each time.

Soul Reaver 3, you all knew it was going to happen eventually.

I'm surprised that they've yet to advertise their unorthodox gameplay concepts, which are by far the most interesting aspects of this game. A persistant, evolving world where your enemies live their lives, eating, sleeping, scheming and stabbing each other in the back for advancement.

Dynamic enemies that will respond differently depending on how you dealt with them beforehand. Throw a fucker into a fire, he might return burned and scarred. Feed one orc's lietuenant to a troll, his bodyguard, now risen to chiefs in their own right, might panic and flee if you release a troll in their midst.

And then there's the entire concept of turning enemies into spies for your own cause with GHOST POWERS so that you can do all that scheming and backstabbing, your own self.

They've got some really great ideas. If they manage to deliver on them, we'll finally have a game where you can play as Raziel and Varys at the same time.

@humanity: I hear that the combat is very reminiscent of the Arkham games, but with blood, where-as the climbing portions are very AC-esque. Talked with a fella' who got to play a version of the game and he was very impressed. Also, I'm pretty sure that's all in-game.

Isn't 98% of the LOTR books about people walking from one place to another?

Edited by fuzzypumpkin

@humanity: I'm almost 100% sure that that was in-game footage....unless CG has gotten worse over the years. It hasn't.

Yeah, the assets are very clearly in-game (and not even that great, that Triple H hair). The animation is really impressive.

This is from Monolith, right?

I suppose I meant "cutscene" and just wrote CG instead which is my bad.

I certainly hope this game turns out great, as only the worst of people wouldn't want every game that comes out to be awesome, but I thought it was funny that they're asking for pre-orders on a game that has barely seen any sort of coverage.

@humanity: What makes you think it's CG? I think that looks completely believable for PS4/XBOne/PC. Game seems interesting too, although the story comes off a bit hokey.

Posted by jaycrockett

I don't know why but I'm completely buying the cheese they are offering. Maybe I'm just a sucker for Lord of the Rings.

Posted by MeatSim

Sauron was a Templar the whole time.

Posted by magicwalnuts

I guess Warner Brothers decided that one Assassin's Creed game per year wasn't good enough, so they needed to make their own.

Looks like a waste of 60 bucks and time.

This is the sequel to Garshasp, right?

I'm pretty sure the last bit where he was flipping over and stabbin orcs was gameplay.

That broken sword at the start was nice and shiny oooooooh. I'm pretty pumped for this game, the story elements look a bit rote, but if they do it well it could still be great. The gameplay is where I'm most interested, hunting down the big baddies that remember you and change their roles based on your last interaction is a really awesome idea that I hope they pull off well. Plus I'm a sucker for the LOTR setting.

@murdoc_: Yeah, his facial expressions sometimes...

Posted by Pudge

I don't care what anyone says, this game looks great. My inner Tolkien geek is jumping for joy!

Posted by Jolt92

I really hope this is good...

Posted by falling_fast

sweet. i'm really looking forward to this, not as a lord of the rings game (because this isn't a lord of the rings game imo, not really) but just a really badass looking asscreed clone

Posted by thefriend

The main characters face looks a bit rough around the edges. Hopefully the gameplay will be good.

Posted by Hayt

I'm no huge Tolkien nut but this doesn't quite seem to fit the tone of LOTR. That said I really get a kick out of the vibe it's putting off. Reminds me of Gladiator with a hint of Ghost Dad

Posted by NeoZeon

I know so little about the universe that I can't really comment on any of that. It does look interesting though; if that nemesis thing they keep talking about works even half as well as I hope, it could be a blast to play.

Posted by HatKing

Nothing about this seems compelling.

Edited by CornBREDX

I really hope this game is awesome.

Not because I care at all about LOTR (I've always been more into The Hobbit books myself) but because I really want Monolith to make a great game again.

I need it.

Posted by NEONBEAR

is that some troy baker i'm hearing?

Posted by rand0mZer00

Looks pretty cool. I'll keep my eye on it.

Posted by Calmgamer

I'm intrigued... I actually kind of dug that trailer. I hope the combat is decent.

Posted by TomA

@humanity: Well, when they first announced this game, they did a 10 minute walk through of multiple scenarios and explained all of the fundamental game mechanics, which seem really cool.

Posted by VonSoot

Looks ahmazing

Posted by str33tph4rm

@craig_duda: Maybe you should check out the gameplay video first before you make yourself look foolish.

Gameplay video, game looks really fun. Assassin's creed vibes with some new elements ... and LOTR is LOTR so its a must have for me. Really looking forward to the PC version.

Posted by ImHungry

Looks great. But there's no way he comes out at the end winning is there?

Posted by TheTerribleFamiliar

*blech* I played this about 6 times before when the title started with "God of War". Doesn't look like my Middle Earth. We'll see how it turns out, but this doesn't make me more excited for the release.
