Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment today revealed that Middle-earth will be coming to E3 – or at least a Lord of the Rings-themed lounge will be.
There will be daily concerts and cocktail events in the South Hall Lobby Atrium each evening, featuring the music of their upcoming 2011 game, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
During the expo from June 7th to 9th, all show attendees will be invited to visit a Middle-earth themed lounge in the South Hall Lobby Atrium, where complimentary Wi-Fi access will be available to visitors. As show floor activity winds down in the evenings, the lounge will become the venue for a VIP cocktail party and concert, as the space transforms into a merry-making shindig, with music and drink. Award-winning composer Inon Zur will conduct vocalists and a 40-piece live orchestra performing selections from the original score of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
E3 attendees that visit the WBIE Booth (South Hall, #2401) and participate in a demo of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will receive a wrist band, granting them entrance to these nightly concert and cocktail receptions.
The concert schedule is as follows, and for anyone lucky enough to go to E3, it should be worth checking out:
Daily from Tuesday, June 7th – Thursday, June 9th
Tuesday & Wednesday: 5:30pm – 7:00pm
Thursday: 4:30pm – 6pm
