LEGO: The Lord of the Rings Announced

WBIE, TT Games, and the LEGO Group announce LEGO: The Lord of the Rings, an upcoming game that will cross the Tolkien-inspired movie trilogy with the toy series when it's released for PCs and consoles this fall. How to you make a ring out of square plastic bricks? I don't know Johnny, but I do know this:

Explore Middle-earth in an epic and thrilling LEGO videogame adventure for the entire family! Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group today announced LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™, the latest addition to the wildly successful LEGO videogame series that brings to life the legendary fantasy saga by J.R.R. Tolkien. The game will be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 system, the Wii™ system, the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system, the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, PlayStation®Vita system and PC in fall 2012.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings is based on The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy and follows the original storylines of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Now the entire family can team up in pairs as adorable LEGO The Lord the Rings minifigures to experience countless dangers, solve riddles and battle formidable foes on their journey to Mount Doom.

“We are huge aficionados of The Lord of the Rings franchise and are incredibly excited to put our special LEGO family-friendly touch on this classic fantasy adventure,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “We’ve taken what fans are familiar with and love about The Lord of the Rings films and combined it with the playful LEGO style, which makes the story and gameplay accessible to gamers of all ages.”

LEGO The Lord of the Rings takes players along on the adventures of Frodo Baggins and his unlikely fellowship as they set out on a perilous journey to destroy The One Ring and save Middle-earth. Kids, tweens, teens and parents can traverse the Misty Mountains, explore the Mines of Moria, knock on the Black Gate of Mordor, and partake in epic battles with Orcs, Uruk-hai, the Balrog and other fearsome foes while harnessing the humor and imagination of LEGO gameplay to solve puzzles and explore Middle-earth. Players will take on the form of their favorite members of the fellowship – Frodo the Hobbit, Aragorn the Ranger, Gandalf the Wizard, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Boromir a Man of Gondor, and Frodo’s Hobbit friends Sam, Merry and Pippin – as they relive the most momentous events from the films.

Developed by TT Games, the LEGO The Lord of the Rings further expands on the partnership between LEGO and Warner Brothers, who recently launched the brand new LEGO® The Lord of the Rings toy collection. The line includes seven construction sets, such as The Battle of Helms Deep!

The genius of the Ring means that they never have to awkwardly render the ring on a character's fingerless hand because he'll disappear when he/she puts it on.

Nice catch

I dont get it either. How does the design of the game change because they are using LEGO style characters? Why should it change? What makes it different??!? Do what your doing with the lego characters..but with the REAL CHARACTERS! They also dont follow thru on the concept, if your gonna make a lego game then EVERYTHING should be made of lego blocks, but it isn't. FAIL.

Agent X7 - seriously...oversensitive. Have a beer, something stronger maybe. Probably has to do with that job. You have my sympathies, when I worked retail I walked around pissed off quite a bit too. People suck, generally speaking.

Still...saying a Lego video game is getting tired is just like saying the Lego toys are getting tired, and we all know that isn't true. Somethings don't work that way. Its a series meant for kids...complaining that its getting old is like complaining about Santa Claus, Pokemon, and the Easter Bunny. They don't get old..you do.

That's your opinion, and you're welcome to it. However I have read the same complaint from many critics, and not a few kids who shop in my store.

Wow, aren't you the fragile one? If it takes so little for you to become indignant, maybe you shouldn't expose yourself to such withering criticism by not offering opinions that others may disagree with.

No, I'm not fragile. I have to deal with assholes all day long. If you can't offer your opinion without putting someone else down, then you are one of the assholes.

While I do appreciate the fact that Lego is outreaching to so many franchises in pop culture, movies and video games in an effort to adapt.. I'm kind of disappointed in the "toying out" of a Tolkein's work that I've loved and respected so much ever since I can remember even starting to read as a child.

We'll see though, I guess =)

I've enjoyed playing nearly all the lego games and I'm not a kid.

What I do want though is a lego sale on steam to let me get them there without paying $20 each.

So yeah, bring on lego LOTR.

Except for the fact they are fun and you don't know what you are talking about. Kids will love this forever. This is an excellent idea!

Thanks for that. I love when people cannot express their own opinion without putting someone else down for theirs.

Hey, you stated your opinion and he stated his.

As long as they keep up the quality as they have to this point, I say do every universe in Lego!
