Tolkien fans, here is a new look at the forthcoming game. This trailer explores the “Touch Points” where the plot of the game crosses the plot line of the original trilogy.
“The Lord of the Rings: War in the North takes gamers to the unexplored locations of Northern Middle-earth, while also encompassing regions and characters well-known from the award-winning movie trilogy.
Crossing paths with Aragorn in Bree, seeking Elrond’s counsel in Rivendell, these critical names from the movies will set our Fellowship’s journey in motion. Traversing the Misty Mountains and Mirkwood – gathering place of Sauron’s forces – the Fellowship of three begins an expedition to Gundabad and to Carn Dûm itself, their path forever splintering from their brethren in the East. While these iconic film characters depart for the East, our Fellowship in the North will encounter many of the same gruesome enemies. Giant spiders, orc warrior armies and trolls, the darkness pervades all of Middle-earth.”
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be released in Fall 2011 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. A specific release date has yet to be announced.
