Amazon Game Studio is working with Leyou to work on Lord of the Rings massively multiplayer online (MMO) games. Games are planned as free-to-play titles for PCs and consoles.
The title of the Lord of the Rings MMO game was actually announced by the owner of Leyou, Athlon Games. At that time, Athlon was said to be working with an unnamed partner developer.
Well, the latest announcement was revealed by the developer partner referred to by Athlon namely Amazon Games Studio. According to the Athlon announcement last fall, the new MMO took a long time before The Lord of the Rings game.
This timeline looks similar to the upcoming Lord of the Rings TV TV series. In fact, according to Amazon, shows and games are being developed separately and have no connection at all.
Launching The Verge on Thursday (07/11/2019), so far there has been no detail about when Amazon will release an MMO to the public. In fact, Amazon hasn’t revealed which console can play The Lord of the Rings game (MMO).
Speaking of Leyou and Amazon Games Studio, both of them already have experience in working on MMO games. Leyou has the developer of the Digital Extremes Warframe. While the Amazon Games Studio is already in the process of developing for its first MMO, New World.
Lord of the rings game is not the first
Leyou and Amazon Games Studio’s The Lord of the Rings game is not the first MMO based on Tolkien’s world. There is The Lord of the Rings Online that has been around since 2007.
The Lord of the Rings Online offers players new adventures to be played in conjunction with the film War of the Rings trilogy, where the latest update was released on October 2018.
