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.



Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players



Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
