WBIE Releases Final Video of Four for The Lord of the Rings: War in The North
Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the fourth and final vignette featuring a new perspective on The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, releasing November 1st. As the first M-rated video game bearing The Lord of the Rings name, this video addresses a simple – though key – element of this title: slaying orcs.
An assemblage of faces from the gaming and entertainment worlds, as well as key members of the Snowblind Studios team discuss not only the sheer fun obliterating the foul creatures that terrorize Middle-earth, but also speak to the violence depicted in the pages of the books, to describe war torn Middle-earth. Sean Astin and Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings), Brian Posehn (The Sarah Silverman Show) and Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) comment on not only the hordes of orc players will face in the game, but other foes that will pursue them, from troll, to goblins, to fell beasts and more. Gaming personalities Eric Eckstein (G4), Alison Haislip (G4) and Miri Jedeikin address the combination of the visceral combat, with the depth and character development of the RPG elements. Noted Tolkien scholar Corey Olsen points out the scribe’s own experience with war, particularly World Wars I and II.
