Hey guys,

well a guy called "|MeMw|MVPersian" (MeV) was at Comicon. EA LA was there to show off BfME 2 for Xbox 360. Well he wrote in the end Amir talked about the BfME 2 expansion which should be called "The life of witchking". Here's a quote of Persian:

QUOTE
Then Amir showed off a video of their BFME2 on Xbox 360. Following teh video he started to talk about a new Expansion for the PC version. It was called BFME2 The Life of the Witckh King. The story is bascially about what happens when to the WK beforethe period of the War of the ring. It shows the WK in a new armor with new buildsings and new units. There were also new powers like summoning a ice wolf that walks on 2 legs. IT was neat but nothing really special. The graphics were bascially the same. We didnt stay for the cards and collectibles because we had to leave San Diego to come home.


I'm not sure if this is true or not.

INteresting, perhaps. Since I don't play 360 I have no idea about this. Personally, I find the six factions in BFME2 quite expansive enough. Hopefully the upcoming patch will solve some of the balancing and underutilization of units. That is variety enough, IMO.

Thanks for sharing the news on this. biggrin.gif

So you think we can trust him? Though an ice wolf that walks on 2 legs is a very bit awkward for a BFME2 game.

Come on this is EA we are talking about. There are no boundries to what can be in the game. I wouldn't be surprised if they added space ships to the game. I am about 99% sure he is telling the truth. Like I said before he has never lied in the past and why would he go through all of the trouble of talking about the entire event if it were not true. That wouldn't be like Persian at all.

Come on you can't tell me you didn't expect this.

Hey guys,

The official title is called "The Rise of the Witch-king" and i'll have more details on our presentation at Comic-Con later this week.

Unfortunately, MVP misquoted our title, which is rather funny, but its definitely not "the life", its "The Rise..."

I'll have more on this subject later this week, thanks!

How do we get the expansion? (when it comes out) Do we have to buy a whole new CD or will it be like a patch that we can just download?

EX...PAN...SION...., not a patch, a expansion. NOrmally with ea they don't put alot of hours into a game with out wanting money, iam not saying apoc is like that but mabey one of his superiors.

I didn't say it was going to be a patch I said will we be able to download it like a patch, this is only my second strategy game and the first was BFME I and we never got an expansion for that so I just didn't know how to get an expansion.

Interesting stuff and its nice to see you apoc lol.

What gets me is: will this introduce another race? eg:angmar or somthing?, or will it just introduce new stuff, or will it be new campaigns?

Well i just want to know what this entails.
