Wait what?!?

So, Warner Brothers has more *Business Sense* than LucasArts at allowing TWO MMOs on the scene and are not afraid of confusing iddle-widdle player's minds?

Also, Batman?!? DCUO won't be calling (well, literally, it won't since WB seems to accept this). How will that work? Another LoL-styled MMO set in Gotham City, like the proposed LotrO one? Maybe some different game play mechanics?

@Space Cobra
You aren't the only one who is confused x'D
although a Batman mmo is, I guess, inherently different as it doesn't involve the entire DC universe.. Seems like a South Korean early April fools ~~

Huh. Wonder if these will be F2P like the current DC/LotR MMOs. And if WB really wants to try having two LotR MMOs running alongside each other.

More games is never a bad thing. And when 2 games are both using the same IP that encourages competition, which is also a good thing as it means companies have to step up their "game" and make their product the best it can be.

I'd imagine they would run out of playable characters pretty quickly if it ever came to a Lotr-MOBA.

I cannot help but notice the glaring DCUO and LOTRO. Sauron will tolerate no rival! Or Joker!

Turbine's LOTRO is based more so On Tolkien's works since these are licensed with WB I'm thinking this version will be more movie based. Just a thought....

@MrsAngelD Turbine's game is licensed by Middle-earth Enterprises, which is now owned by WB. This one will be as well, since ME holds the rights to both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

I guess I understand, Koreans do play very different then us. They live for grindy questing, Americians not really.

@(Unverified) They don't live for grindy quests, but its more of a competitive style of play. Its just that killing monsters over and over usually factors into that, regardless of how the content is presented. They are quite different indeed.

@(Unverified) Are you serious? Literally almost every western MMO is based around grindy questing.
