War of the Ring Looms

Black Label Games Signs Liquid Entertainment to Develop 'The Lord of the Rings The War of the Ring' is the press release announcing plans for an upcoming real-time strategy game based on the Lord of the Rings novels to be developed by Liquid Entertainment (Battle Realms). Here's a bit on the game, which is currently projected for release in 2004: "Expanding on the world of Middle-earth and its inhabitants as introduced by J.R.R. Tolkien, the game allows players to engage in the epic story though both a good and an evil single-player campaign. Players also will be able to play on both sides in an extensive multi-player mode." On top of the new announcement is where they have posted a Q&A with Ed del Castillo about the game, discussing the challenges of working with this property, standing out from the RTS game crowd, the setting, levels of detail, online support, units, comparisons to other games, and more.

If i'm right, the GamesWorkshop Lotr game is basically Warhammer, which means that it would play on a pc similiar to Shadow of the Horned Rat or the 2nd one (forget the name), both fun games.

Basically, I hope it's a 'split' game (that is stategic and tactical parts are done on separate maps/ui etc ala Medieval, War in Middle Earth, Warhammer, etc. rather than the 'typical' RTS hodgepodge of workers, buildings and combat units.
