Get your Frodo on....With the first of three Lord of the Rings movies slated to hit theaters this Christmas, Sierras announcement of an Xbox title based on Tolkiens popular novels has created quite a stir in the gaming community. Xbox.ign sat down with WXP co-founder Patrick Moynihan to talk about the first Xbox Lord of the Rings title, Fellowship of the Ring. Heres a bit of the interview and the link to check the rest out.
IGN: Were assuming well be getting our Frodo on, but how involved will the rest of the Fellowship be in the game? Will we see any cameos, or will we take control of any other party members during the game? If not directly, do you guys plan to incorporate AI team members, because hey...Frodo is kind of a wuss...
PM: All nine members of the fellowship will be available as AI characters to help Frodo out in the thick of battle, or to provide useful information to progress the story. As in the books, Fellowship members will change throughout the game as the story unfolds. Each member of the Fellowship has special attacks or abilities, so some strategy will be required to call upon the appropriate character for the job.
