Amazon Game Studios has recently announced a partnership with Los Angeles-based Athlon Games for the development of a new lord of the Ring MMORPG.
Amazon Lord of the Rings MMORPG was first announced last year by the Chinese company Leyou Technologies, parent company of Athlon Game Studios. The game will be a free-to-play game set around the time and events of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The MMO will be based more in the original Books by J.R.R Tolkiens rather than Peter Jackson films.
After its resent restructuration Amazon Game Studios will now lead the project by creating a development team of veterans that have work on previous popular MMOs like Destiny, Everquest, Planetside, and World of Warcraft. The same team is also the one developing Amazon upcoming original title, New World.
There isn’t confirmation as to when The Lord of the Ring MMO will see the daylight. However, it’s set to be released on both PC and consoles.
So what do you think? J.R.R. Tolkien massive and legendary fantasy world will be coming in the shape of an MMO, are you excited?
