Warner Bros. Interactive has released a trailer showing fans how the events of the upcoming action RPG Lord of the Rings: War in the North
will intersect with the events of the film trilogy. The films see the ring bearer's Fellowship head towards the East, but a new threat has arisen in the North. Players must head North to the previously unexplored locations of Northern Middle-Earth to defeat Sauron and his forces, and save Middle-Earth.
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.
For the sake of Middle-earth, may the journeys lead to victory for our heroes.
