Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Snowblind Studios reveal the box art for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
With the nearly insurmountable weight of the survival of Middle-earth on their shoulders, the Fellowship of three – human, elf and dwarf – prepare for the journey ahead.
Traversing the territories of this little known region, the Fellowship must work in concert – battling limitless hordes, testing the limits of the brutalities of war, protecting each other at every turn – if Middle-earth is to be saved. Looking to the blood-stained path that lies ahead, the Fellowship must not waver in the face of impending death.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is an intense Action RPG video game based on the renowned works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Through innovative online, interdependent co-op play for up to three players who form their own Fellowship, the game breaks new ground as the first The Lord of the Rings video game to embrace the gritty and brutal reality of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth. Exploring previously unseen lands, storylines and characters as well as those familiar from past feature films, gamers experience expansive co-op gameplay and upgradeable weapons, character customization and development, skills and special abilities. Gamers must play together or perish as they work to defeat Sauron’s forces in the North. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Games for Windows.
