LOTR: War in the North Brutal Combat Trailer

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
J.R.R. Tolkien imagined a violent battle, and you will bloodshed and severed limbs in action RPG The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. The new 'Brutal Combat' trailer uses gameplay footage to demonstrate the gritty and brutal reality of Middle Earth.

We invite you to experience battle as J.R.R. Tolkien imagined it; where blood-stained swords and blood-soaked battlefields pave the way on your quest to save Middle-earth. A well-placed arrow sears through enemy chests, and skilfully timed swords tear limb-and head-from body. Even the fearsome battle troll is felled by a well-placed stab through the top of the skull. Now is the time to gather your Fellowship around you and prepare for a bloody good fight...

For those of you who can't view the trailer, here are a few screenshots of battles in the snowy mountains, and they're not using snowballs as weapons:
