Lord Of The Rings: War In The North Dated For UK

November is already set to be a busy month for games, but now, in the UK at least, it’s going to get busier with the addition of Lord of the Rings: War in the North.

The Action RPG, placed at number 80 in our top 100 games for 2011, will face stiff competition from the likes of Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and others.


Warner Bros. and Snowblind Studios obviously want to take advantage of the holiday season, but by releasing the title amongst the other gaming heavyweights, there’s a risk that it’ll get buried quicker than you can say “my precious”.

So will you be travelling to middle earth this November? Or do you have prior engagements with some other titles? Please let us know in the comments.

If you are planning a trip, you may be interested in the special collector’s edition, which is detailed here.



  1. Lord of the Rings is a brand name capable of selling well no matter what time it is released.
    I know that when my family go out to guess what games Colmshan1990 would like for his ‘Playstationing,’ a name like Lord of the Rings is more likely to stand out than any other, except maybe FIFA.
    It won’t outsell COD, but it’s not likely to be killed off by it.

  2. November the… ?
