Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today releases a new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, showing the intersection of the story in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy with the story in the video game. As the ring bearer’s adventure begins to the East, a new threat arises in the North. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North takes gamers to the unexplored locations of Northern Middle-earth, while also encompassing regions and characters well-known from the award-winning movie trilogy.
WARNING: There are some decapitations in the trailer, so if you are under 18, make sure you get your parents permission before taking the jump…
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.[quicktime]http://www.majorspoilers.com/media/witn.mov[/quicktime]
For the sake of Middle-earth, may the journeys lead to victory for our heroes.
