Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and Snowblind Studios have officially launched their exciting new game set in J.R.R. Tolkien's iconic Middle Earth; The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
War in the North tells the tale of 3 warriors who must stop the Dark Lord Sauron from amassing in army in the North of Middle Earth. Their story parallels the events of Tolkien's literature and the film adaptaions, but the players do not directly interact with Frodo or the One Ring. Instead, players get to visit iconic areas based on the beautiful visions in Peter Jackson's films. Players will speak with Aragorn at the Prancing Pony in Bree and travel to other such legendary locations and interact with notable characters from the lore.
In addition to the launch of the game, WB has released the fourth and final Behind the Scenes feature that involves dealing death to Orcs. Enjoy the video embedded above!
The game is in stores now, so be sure to keep your eyes on Curse.com because we'll have a deep, hands-on post with the game later this afternoon.
