ComicCon Interview With Jeff Anderson

ComicCon Interview With Jeff Anderson - MMORPG.com

News Editor Garrett Fuller attended last week's Comic Con in New York. This, his first report from the show, is an interview with Jeff Anderson, the CEO of Turbine about their upcoming title, Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar.

At the NY Comic Convention I was lucky enough to get some time with Turbine CEO Jeff Anderson. Jeff and I spoke in depth about the upcoming launch of Lord of the Rings Online and what he hoped that the game would deliver. My overall impression of Turbine's LOTRO has always been a good one; a quality game for players who are fans of the stories. After learning more about the game this past weekend, my expectations have certainly risen. Turbine has also proven to be a company that cares about their players is hoping to reward them with LOTRO.

Jeff was quick to talk about the Founder's System in LOTRO that is available for players. No, it is not a game mechanic; it is a way of paying for the game. Jeff told me that he really wanted a way to reward players who got into the game from the beginning. The Founder's System not only allows you to pay $9.99 a month, but it will also allow you to keep your characters after open beta and into launch with the only catch being that the transfer character level cap is fifteen. Turbine sees the pre-orders as a way to not only reward loyal players, but give them a leg up in the game. Their hope is that this will help to build a community. If a player can reach level fifteen in beta and transfer that character to launch, they will have an impact right away. It gives them the ability to help other lower level players and build community relationships faster.
