A New Lord Of The Rings Game Is In The Works
One game to rule them all.
Let’s face it, we can’t get enough of Lord of the Rings! We can watch Peter Jackson’s trilogy over and over again and not get enough of it. But, it looks like we’re going to get more content related to JRR Tolkien’s amazing universe. This is because there’s a new Lord of the Rings game in the works!
One Lord of the Rings Game to rule them all
We got great news from the Tolkien Estate. Warner Bros and NetEase have announced a new Lord of the Rings mobile game, named The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War. This game will, however, be based on the books by JRR Tolkien, and not on Jackson’s trilogy. It is set in Middle Earth and, according to a press release by NetEase, it:
will recreate the fictional world of Arda in a visually stunning and completely faithful rendition, with iconic characters and locations from the original trilogy.
However, we don’t have a lot of details about the game just yet. All we have is this image, in which Sauron’s forces are attacking Minas Tirith. But, everyone is expecting it to be a strategy game. This Lord of the Rings game is set in the Third Age, which lasted for 3000 years and resulted in the defeat of Sauron’s forces. All we have right now is this promo image, with Minas Tirith under attack.
However, Lord of the Rings: Rise To War game is not the only game or content of this universe set in the third age. Firstly, Electronic Arts released The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age. But, the real deal is the Lord of the Rings TV show that is underway at Amazon. It’s also set in the third age and will feature a lot of familiar faces from the original trilogy. So, there’s a lot of content from Middle Earth that we have coming to look forward to.
