This is what a LOTR game would look like in CryEngine 3 – Mind-Blowing Fan Project Resurrects Balrog

Lord of the Rings fans, get ready to wet your pants. Modder ‘The_Distiller’ has released a new video from his LOTR ‘Balrog’ Cinematic Scene that is being created with CryEngine 3. To put it simple – this cinematic is really, really close to the real deal and showcases how powerful CryEngine 3 actually is. What’s also great is that Balrog looks almost the same with the CG version that was featured in the LOTR movie. This is not the final version of the video, so we’ll be sure to keep you posted. For now, enjoy the video after the jump!

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.
