The RTS- series ‘Battle for Middle-Earth‘, based on the Tolkien-created LOTR- universe are among the best strategy games ever made AND perhaps the best using Warner Bros.’ license.
The footage above is the first gameplay reveal of the enthusiasts- based remade project. It’s based on the first game in the series, released 2004 by EA. A sequel(BFME2) and an expansion to the sequel(The Rise of the Witch-king) followed the original.
The license went back to Warner Bros. in 2008, so ‘Battle for Middle-Earth: Reforged’ could become the closest thing to a remaster for at least a couple of years. The makers state that this is a non-commercial fan project currently under development. It introduces “Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth” to a brand new game engine – Unreal Engine 4.
We’re really proud to finally announce the release of our beloved Northgard on Xbox, PS4 and Switch!
Northgard on console will feature all the content found in the Steam base version including the major Ragnarok and Relics updates: six clans, a lengthy campaign, cooperative and competitive online play across various maps including the apocalyptic-themed Ragnarok, ranked play and much more. Shiro Games has also ensured that playing using the controller will be effortless, with many tweaks and a completely revamped user interface.
Northgard is a strategy game deeply ingrained with Norse mythology. Players take control of their chosen Viking clan to explore and settle new territories which are filled with untold riches and deadly magical foes, from dire wolves and undead warriors, to giants and great dragons. To bring fame to their clan and write history, players will have to carefully manage their resources, trade with rival clans, befriend or defeat mythical creatures, brave the harshest winters and conquer unforgiving lands.
I’ve been a BIG FAN of RTS ever since I’ve played AoE. The Conan- universe has been expanded into movies and even an MMO released not long ago.
Conan Unconquered is the first-ever (real time) strategy game set in the savage world of Conan the Barbarian. Published by Funcom and developed by the Command & Conquer veterans at Petroglyph. These guys know what they’re doing.
I like where it’s headed, it looks nice.
Below is the 20 minutes long co-op gameplay clip showing Jens Erik Vaaler (community manager) and Petroglyph’s Renato Orellana (designer) building defenses against the soon invading hordes.
There’s also a 5 minutes long video which takes a deeper look into the gameplay, also from the devs:
