The Lord of The Rings Goes to War
Mature RPG explores new areas of Middle Earth.

March 18, 2010 - J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth saga continues in 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 with the release of Snowblind Studios (http://games.ign.com/objects/026/026626.html)' action-RPG, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North (http://pc.ign.com/objects/045/045923.html). Based on events mentioned in the novels and included in Tolkien's annotations, War in the North reveals the full details of a battle few know, but one that helped shape the fight against Sauron.

The first M-rated (17+) Lord of the Rings title, War in the North uses elements of the books and the films. That means you can expect some of the film actors' likenesses (and perhaps voices) as well as elements of Middle Earth never shown in the movies.

Up to three players can join forces online to battle Sauron's army with "interdependent co-op play." Expect some of the staples of RPG gaming, including upgradeable skills, weapons and abilities. Grinding has not been confirmed.

Little else is known about War in the North, but the debut trailer suggests it's going to kick ass. OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!:jmp:

I wonder if it will use any of what was planned for 'White Council' a couple of years back?

I read elsewhere that this is going to be a lot like Champions of Norrath, gameplay-wise; an "evolution" of that style...

Seems interesting.....
Never was into LoTR games but this might change my mind. But 2011 is too long a wait isnt it?
