Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Snowblind Studios have announced today that The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will launch in November this year for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Games for Windows PC. This comes as a relief as nothing had been heard regarding its release date, despite it being scheduled loosely for 2011. The game’s Collector’s Edition will also launch in November and features behind-the-scenes looks at the game development, a specially crafted art book, digital download content and more.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, rating pending as BBFC 18, transports players to unknown lands, unexplored by the films, as they journey to the Northern lands of Middle-earth. Intertwining the characters and storyline of the novel and films, the game takes place in parallel with the well-known Ring Bearer’s quest, but in the equally harsh and contested lands to the North, as the battle for Middle-earth’s survival rages.
