Yes, that small segment is LOTR in a way. However, I remember it only from BFME2 during the loading screen/gameplay(also in the multiplayer screen). The "promoted trailer" also pulls the dwarf theme from the same game(BFME2).. As far as the movies goes... I don't know...

No it must be the same music. You see they use similar instrument composition on a large scale. Basically, any song with no lyrics is copying the original songs with no lyrics. (Both no lyrics = same lyrics) Hildegard von Bingen must be rolling around on his copyrights.

@ evaneself Having watched The Lord of the Rings films at least 300 times, and owning the soundtrack to all three films, I suggest you get your "ear for music" retuned...

@SilencerPM it took me 65 hours to complete the game first time around and I guess the expansion will take around 35 hours, but I won't argue if they want to give us a longer game! :D

@ evaneself Duke_51 explained it the best, I would just like to add, that even if it is the same music, you can buy the rights to use it, hence it would NOT be stolen :S movies and games do it all the time, if a song is so epic, why not use it in more than one movie? or use it and put a slightly new twist on it?

@ evaneself Well, it does SOUND like music from LOTR, but it's not. A lot of composers who write scores for these kind of things (Star Wars, LOTR, Star Trek, etc.) get their inspiration from the same group of composers from around the same era. If you ever saw the new Star Trek movie, there's a song in there that totally sounds like Mars, from the planets symphony by Gustav Holst. Anyways, the guy who wrote the music for LOTR most likely got his ideas from some other composer - likely from the 19th century. No music was "stolen" here from Lord of the Rings

Yes, it's music from LotR!! Is stolen! Shame for such a great game. If you give me your negative, that means you have no ear for music or memory.

It's hard to tell from the video whether it will deliver goods or just take up hard drive space. It seems that often the DLCs aren't that great and there's a reason they left them out of the original game the first time around. Exceptions are of course made. GTA IV, Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare and Forza Motorsport 3 for example have had brilliant content along with many other.

@CrimsonKnight52 You serious? I've never heard it in the DAO soundtrack. Man it sounds so much like LOTR.

Haha there is no way that that is LOTR music. Similar tune though. Ive seen all 3 extended numerous times, and I see where your getting at, but it is not LOTR music.

@Eltrax Not LOTR music. It's from the Dragon Age soundtrack. Yes, I'm that big of a nerd, err I mean fan.

Dont think ill be getting the expansion. After they released the DLC i lost all faith in bioware's capability to improve an already great game. Unless this game gets an average rating score of 8,5 or higher, im skipping it.

the only new thing this trailer told me was that the dragon is a queen and that it summons balls.

*Note to 2K I will now not be buying Bioshock 2 because I have seen that trailer too many times! I completed it 60 hours. Everything done (minus a couple of DLC) and happy ending bla bla bla. Played through again, slightly different but basically same things. I can't get my head around DLC for an rpg. Either it's: a) Filler. Bad guys are dead but their not dead, go off level up and fight 10 more of these things. Now their dead; well done. or b)A story arc. Wizard X from so many years ago decided not to die and now holds some crap on top of a mountain, fetch. Whats the point in getting new stuff at the end of the game? Its either got to be in the game orginally or not at all. The way things are at the moment its makes more sense to wait 1-2 years after release, pick it up at budget price with all dlc/expansions and then play through it.

Uhh.. Why was there LOTR music at the end? Lol. Its nice to see an expansion to the story, I'm definitely getting this.

@Dawn_oF_Doom: Perhaps you should have tried it on Hard mode. It's rather challenging then.

I can't wait for this expansion. I just finished Dragon Age and loved ever minute of the 70 plus hours I spent in that world. It renewed my interest in the fantasy genre.

I think the video is pretty clear at what it's trying to say... but i agree that it could be longer

I hate it when these videos show you only a small part of a game. Not even enough to give you an idea about how this game is.

In dragon age the only problem i had was to try to fight with flennagan without a healer and low level :) afer leveling the whole game was easy

So they're in a marsh when an electrical dead dragon attacks. The fantasy version of Ed Wood, maybe. Who cares.

Well, I just hope that the end boss fight will be harder, I mean killing the archdeamon was a piece of cake with my warrior (sword+Shield).... just 1 teammate died(leliana) because the archdeamon was dying and I didnt give a damn about them anymore :P ... hope they make this game more challenging.

I'm hoping that this expansion will up the difficulty. I was falling asleep at a few parts during hard mode (only 1 playthrough so far), although the story was very good. The only area I recall being a challenge is the area in the deep roads starting from the fortress and ending at the act boss fight for the deep roads. The game did go up in general difficulty at the end, but that area is what stood out the most.

@13kf It's an expansion... sorry to break the bad news to you, but yeah, you're going to have to install it. I've honestly never heard of an expansion that you don't need to install... Whether you need the expansion disk or can simply use the original disk is beyond me, but I'm positive that an install is a must.

13kf

I know it is an expansion but is it like you need to install it or can you just play(I have the dragon age origins) it? I ask because I have a 20 gig hdd and i only have like 6.5 gig left.
