'The Lord of the Rings: Conquest' (ALL) Heroes & Maps Pack Now Available

by Rainier on Feb. 26, 2009 @ 5:08 a.m. PST

The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is an action-packed game set in The Lord of the Rings universe of J.R.R. Tolkien where players will fight epic battles any way they want, whether it be as the heroic forces of good, or as the legions of Sauron’s evil army, including Cave-trolls, Oliphaunts, the Balrog and Sauron himself

In a partnership with New Line Cinema and The Saul Zaentz Company, The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is an action-packed game created by the same Pandemic Studios team behind the best-selling Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II titles. Set in “The Lord of the Rings” universe of J.R.R. Tolkien as depicted by the Academy Award-winning films, players will finally fight the entirety of these epic battles any way they want. In addition to crusading as the heroic forces of good, for the first time ever in a ‘The Lord of the Rings’ action title they’ll conquer Middle-earth while playing as the legions of Sauron’s evil army, including Cave-trolls, Oliphaunts, the Balrog and Sauron himself.

By downloading the Heroes & Maps pack, players will get to choose from three new classic J.R.R. Tolkien characters to play as, including the massive Gothmog, the heroic Boromir and the powerful Elven Maiden Arwen, bringing the total number of playable characters to over 20. Players can battle as these heroes and villains in two new multiplayer maps, all playable in any of the game’s three game modes, Team Deathmatch, Conquest and Capture the Ring, taking players to the hot lava fields in the Battle of the Last Alliance or the shady forests of Amon Hen.

Also included are two new Hero Arenas, Minas Tirith and Weathertop. This new game mode offers players an additional extension to The Lord of the Rings: Conquest experience where they can engage in intense, online battles in a small theatre of war. This mode gives fans a chance to see the heroes and villains of the universe settle long-time battles and rivalries one on one. The previously released Hero Arena content pack including the first two arenas is still available as a free (reauires valid Xbox Live or PlayStation Network Account) download on Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network.

“The Lord of the Rings universe offers so much variety and depth and we wanted to pass more of this incredible experience to fans,” says Michael Saladino, Senior Producer at Pandemic Studios. “The Heroes & Maps pack gives gamers a chance to experience even more intense battles with their friends online and explore more of Middle-earth.”

The new Heroes & Maps Pack is available for download today for 800 Microsoft Points on the Xbox Live Marketplace and $9.99 at the PlayStation Store.
