The Lord Of The Rings Universe Is Coming To CryEngine 3 With This ‘Balrog Cinematic’ Project

Have you ever wondered what a LOTR game would look like in CryEngine 3? Well, it seems that we’ll find out pretty soon. Modder ‘The_Distiller’ – known for his work on a Judge Dredd CryEngine 3 project that was cancelled since he lost his assets – has been hard at work and is currently creating a cinematic sequence that is inspired by The Lord Of The Rings. This cinematic sequence is built with CryEngine 3 and focuses on The Balrog of Moria. No release date has been announced as of yet, but The_Distiller has released the first teaser trailer and screenshot for this project. Enjoy and stay tuned!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
