Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have released a new trailer for Snowblind Studios’ upcoming Lord of the Rings: War in the North, showing how the game will intersect the plot of the trilogy. The trailer features exerts from the movie, as well as the vocal talents of Sir Ian McKellen who, as you should know, plays Gandalf.
As the ring bearer’s adventure begins to the East, a new threat arises in the North. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North takes gamers to the unexplored locations of Northern Middle-earth, while also encompassing regions and characters of the trilogy of films. Crossing paths with Aragorn in Bree, seeking Elrond’s counsel in Rivendell, these recognisable names and locations from the movies show how the two are intertwined and will set our Fellowship’s journey in motion. Traversing the Misty Mountains and Mirkwood – gathering place of Sauron’s forces – the Fellowship of three begins an expedition to Gundabad and to Carn Dûm itself, their path forever splintering from their brethren in the East.
Lord of the Rings: War in the North is scheduled for release this August on PS3, PC and Xbox 360
