WB and Telltale Games Confirm LEGO Lord of the Rings

“One Brick to Rule them all…”

So after Star Wars, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Batman, Rock Band…and more LEGOs, WB Interactive Entertainment and Telltale Games have announced their plans to recreate the fantastic world of Middle Earth one brick at a time.

LEGO Lord of the Rings, trailer seen here, is already shaping up to have some very interesting improvements to the now long-established LEGO game franchise, complete with a voice soundtrack ripped directly from the movies themselves! It’s really interesting to see LEGO games with voice acting, the only other one I’ve seen so far being the upcoming LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

Along with voiceover, players can expect to visit LEGO-fied versions of all their favorite locales, as they venture through ALL THREE FILMS with the likes of Frodo, Sam, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf and more of the intriguing characters created from the mind of J.R.R Tolkien!

I wonder exactly how much from the films are included in this game, though? I’m just saying: the movies themselves clocked in at around 8-9 hours, so translating that to a game would possibly end up making this one of the longest LEGO experiences yet!

I haven’t played too many of these, but this will definitely be one to check out when it releases. Hopefully a date will surface soon.

New Footage Shows Off PlayStation 5 Loading Times

Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Loading PS5

New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.

The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.

The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.

Check out the full video below.

Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.

A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
