Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Snowblind Studios announce
the North American release of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
for Windows Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, offering an action/RPG based on Tolkien's fantasy world. Here's a bit:
In The Lord of the Rings: War in the North gamers will play as part of a three-player Fellowship including Farin the Dwarf Champion, Eradan the Human Ranger, and Andriel the Elf Loremaster. Each character boasts different strengths and abilities needed to defeat their foes, requiring players to play together or perish. The Giant Eagle, Beleram, lends crucial support to the Fellowship, and can be called in by players for strategic attacks against hordes of Orcs, Trolls and other remorseless creatures of Middle-earth.
“The Lord of the Rings: War in the North blends unrelenting combat with a great co-op experience for players to journey through an original story in a dark Middle-earth like the one portrayed in the original novels,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The game delivers high quality graphics and customization perfect for The Lord of the Rings fans.”
