Hands-on Gameplay with LEGO Lord of the Rings
Wired Magazine’s Geekdad had an opportunity to play the upcoming LEGO Lord of the Rings game while attending E3. He was only able to play a small portion of the game, when the fellowship entered the Mines of Moria to be exact. The gameplay is a little different from TT Games previous offerings from other franchises. For starters, it’s a little more linear than the usual hub-centric approach due to the fact that it is following a storyline. There is also dialog in this game, with audio lifted straight out of the films. And finally, there will be a local multiplayer aspect for Nintendo 3DS owners (and presumably Playstation Vita) assuming each player has a copy of the game.
LEGO Lord of the Rings will be available for all current systems starting on October 1, 2012. Pre-order from Amazon.
