The Lord Of The Rings: Aragorn’s Quest Supports Playstation Move

March 11th, 2010 by

The news that Sony have officially unveiled the Playstation motion controller, and given it an all important, healthy living evoking name, may have only just broken, but already the big companies are announcing projects featuring this new tech. One we’re particularly keeping an eye on though is The Lord Of The Rings: Aragorn’s Quest.

The title, which is also coming to Playstation 2, PSP, Nintendo Wii and DS is set to include ‘full support at the controller’s launch’ for its family friendly experience, revolving around the adventures of Aragorn across the entirety of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. So expect fully realised sword play and archery utilising the new Playstation Move tech.

This, plus slightly enhanced graphics and controls, minus Wii D-pad = LOTR:AQ PS3

So why are we excited? Well as opposed to much of what we’ve seen so far from game title announcements, this is a fully fledged, original title as rather than a collection of glorified tech demos; with multiple and exceptionally complex uses for the same device. The game itself, as you’ll see on the title’s official website, looks like pretty standard action adventure license fare, but the desire to fend off a pack of marauding Orcs with a virtual blade that you have direct control over, is pretty strong, and as the game comes from the teams behind House Of The Dead Overkill, Battalion Wars 2 and a stream of successful LEGO ports, Headstrong Games and TT Fusion, our money’s on this being a solid experience all round.

The Lord Of The Rings: Aragorn’s Quest (as well as Playstation Move) is released this Autumn.

    The game looks OK, but the video footage is no doubt from the Wii version, but why can nobody ever get Viggo Mortensen’s face right, every game and figurine always looks off, they’ve got most of the other actors looking decent, Sean Bean’s looks really good.
