The Lord of the Rings: War in the North Ships to North America

The first Mature-rated The Lord of the Rings game, delivering an all-new story
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, a multiplayer action/RPG video game based on the renowned novels by J.R.R. Tolkien, has been launched in North America, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. In The Lord of the Rings: War in the North gamers will play as part of a three-player Fellowship including Farin the Dwarf Champion, Eradan the Human Ranger, and Andriel the Elf Loremaster. Each character boasts different strengths and abilities needed to defeat their foes, requiring players to play together or perish. The Giant Eagle, Beleram, lends crucial support to the Fellowship, and can be called in by players for strategic attacks against hordes of Orcs, Trolls and other remorseless creatures of Middle-earth. Supporting local or online co-op, Fellowships can be configured in two or three player LAN or online play, or up to two player split screen. A strong Fellowship is born from strong team members, so players can individually customize and upgrade their characters, taking advantage of the literally thousands of weapons, armor pieces and items as well as other unique skills and abilities in the game. The game also supports single player mode with AI companions. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be launched in Europe on November 4th, and in UK on November 22nd.
