Let this knowledge aid you on your adventure.
Josh writes: Ringers around the world got a chance to step back into the world of Middle-Earth recently with WB Games and Snow Blind Studios action RPG The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. This game instead of having us play as The Fellowship or follow them takes us to places in Middle-Earth we’ve not been before. Not to mention we also get to interact with some of the major players in The War of the Ring as well as characters like Radagast the Brown who we’ve only had names mentioned.
War in the North takes place during The War of the Ring and through the eyes of characters Eradan: Dunedain Ranger, Andriel: Loremaster of Rivendell , and Farin: Champion of Erebor. This story is expanded universe like in that none of this is actually recorded by Professor Tolkien himself. That does not stop the story from being very entertaining as you venture through Middle-Earth being a small part in helping to stop Sauron from getting back the Ring of Power.

“Composing the music for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North was a very inspirational, creative process,” said Zur. “The story is very compelling, and this had a direct influence on my music. As a long time fan of The Lord of the Rings, I always dreamed to be a part of this franchise, and when this dream came true, I was extremely motivated to tell the emotional story of this dark heroic adventure and its captivating characters. Bringing on board the London Philharmonia Orchestra at the legendary Abbey Road studios magnified the music to new heights.
