40 billion popular IPs were tragically hidden by NetEase? The Lord of the Rings new game was complained about: the quality of the page game

Hello everyone, this is the surprise game, I am the little brother who loves to eat melons.

When it comes to the IP of "The Lord of the Rings", even if you haven't seen the movie trilogy, you should have heard of the amazing record of people who won 5.858 billion US dollars at the global box office (about 42.31995 billion).

One thing to say, the famous scene of Aragorn commanding the ghost army to charge back then, the little brother can still recall one or two, the impact, the visual performance, the bar!

It stands to reason that such a big god IP is adapted into a game, don't you say that you will invest 1.8 million yuan to support it, and at the very least, there should be a publicity like last year's "Lord of the Rings: Gollum", right?

But the problem is that so many days have passed, and NetEase's "Lord of the Rings: Discord" mobile game launched on May 16 is still quiet and has not made any big waves.

Whether someone complains on the official post bar, the public test is quiet;

It's still an official account run by itself, and it's ...... popular So so.

Compared with the official accounts of other NetEase games, which have dozens or millions of views at every turn, the publicity popularity of the public beta of "The Lord of the Rings: Strife" is really "pitiful".

EMM, anyway, is like the more than 400 billion big coffee positions of "The Lord of the Rings", which really can't touch the edge......

So the question is, with the blessing of the Lord of the Rings + NetEase, why is the game "The Lord of the Rings: Discord" so low-key in the open beta? With curiosity, the little brother also ran to play and took a screenshot for everyone to see:

The hero (commander) of this game is like this, you have to spend resources to draw cards to cultivate, and unlock new skills one level at a time:

Then, the cutscene is like this, giving people a sense of Renaissance, which is quite retro;

And its core SLG gameplay is like this, except that it doesn't pave the way and has air units, there are basically no major changes;

Finally, the store page that everyone is most curious about also lives up to expectations with a bunch of red dots;

It's no wonder that players will complain in the comment area that this game doesn't look like Lord of the Rings at all:

- What is the shore of the youth mini rate of the soil, one point is all the recharge interface, and the first charge of 6 yuan can get the emperor of Aragorn!

- I'm the Human Emperor Aragorn, I was killed by the Demon Lord Sauron, so I'm going to recharge 6 yuan to help me win the retro match

- It's not fun, the graphics are rough, the strategy is not enough, and the combat is boring. I was completely attracted by the Lord of the Rings IP, and I felt a little disappointed after playing

It's just that you don't look at this game being picked on in various ways in China, people's overseas reputation is still quite good, it has entered the top 10 best-selling lists in 28 countries, and has also won Google's "Best Story Game of the Year 2022" award, and the cumulative number of downloads worldwide has exceeded 10 million.

To put it bluntly, the SLG track abroad has not been so rolled up in China, so foreigners still eat the set of "Youth mini version of the shore of the land".

The younger brother has something to say: From the perspective of a "small cost and big production" work that goes to sea, the overseas results of "The Lord of the Rings: Discord" are indeed good, but from the perspective of an SLG mobile game that has been mature and operated overseas for 3 years, and then rebuilt in China, most of the gameplay of this game is indeed quite "retro", and it is difficult to please players.

If NetEase is really ready to engage in the IP of "The Lord of the Rings", the younger brother thinks it is better to roll up the MMO+ open world track, NetEase Art + the grand scene of Middle-earth, isn't this promising?
