82w ago - Snowblind Studios Producer Ruth Tomandl has shared a first look video today on the Witch-king in The Lord of the Rings: War in the North for PlayStation 3 today.
To quote: The whole Snowblind Studios team here in Seattle is in the final stretch of development for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. We cannot wait for the PlayStation community to get their hands on the game, which ships on November 1st.
This has been a great year for The Lord of the Rings. The extended BDs came out this summer, timed with special theatre showings of the films across the nation. It really gave fans the chance to reconnect with these amazing stories, as well as see new content.
With The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, players will be able to experience the iconic Middle-earth universe even more deeply with completely new adventures and story, all based on The Lord of the Rings canon and approved by the license holders.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North brings a new story to the table, and we've also created a video game experience that I believe is truer to The Lord of the Rings than has been achieved before.

To quote: By now, quite a few PlayStation 3 owners will have had the chance to try out the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow demo.
What were you trying to put across with that teaser?
It was just a small taster of what to expect. The demo was created to showcase the visuals the game enjoys and as a basic introduction to how the user can enhance Gabriel's combat and abilities.
It is difficult showing the variety of the full game in just two levels, but the first stage is a sampler of the way combat works, while the second level, where Gabriel is horse-bound and battling Wargs and Lycans, highlights the variety of content the final game offers.
How would you describe the learning curve of your combat system?
It's a constantly evolving system, where the player can decide what to add and when. We wanted to remain true to the exploration ethos of the original Castlevania games, where a picture of the map would indicate areas you had...
