Snowblind Studios have announced ‘Lord of the Rings: War in the North” for PS3 and Xbox, published by Warner. The press release is rather verbose, check this out:
“The Lord of the Rings: War in the North advances the RPG paradigm through innovative online, interdependent co-op play for up to three players who form their own Fellowship to fight Sauron’s forces in the North.”
I bet Sauron never thought he would be ‘advancing the RPG paradigm’ when he made all those Orcs. Over to Ryan Geithman, Founder and Studio Head of Snowblind who says:
“This game is a natural evolution of the acclaimed RPG game play that Snowblind has consistently delivered over the past years. Players and fans will experience an innovative approach to online co-op game play, woven throughout every facet of the game in a way that only Snowblind can deliver.”
In the game you will become a hero in the ‘War of the Ring’, exploring lands and meeting characters new and familiar. As Warner own the rights to both the books and the films expect key sequences from the motion pictures to feature.
