In this latest episode of “Behind the Scenes” we get introduced to the horses of Rohan. They talk with Todd Demelle, Turbine Online Art Director, about the importance of horses to Rohan.
Chris Poller, an equestrian specialist, talks about the type of horse that was selected and why. He was talking about actual horses and they are showing clips of their live trailer but it seems to me that the same research was used to model the in-game warsteed. If you visit the steed in Combe you can tell that it is much larger and stronger than our typical steeds currently in game.
The video finishes up with Linda Currie, Turbine Design Director, talking about the Rohirrim horses and the mearas.
We also have a whole new set of screenshots featuring mounted combat and warsteeds.
