The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

New trailer showcases brutal combat. AND MY AXE.

Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Snowblind Studios share a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Action RPG The Lord of the Rings: War in the North , highlighting the realistic combat of war-torn Middle-earth. We invite you to experience battle as J.R.R. Tolkien imagined it; where blood-stained swords and blood-soaked battlefields pave the way on your quest to save Middle-earth.  A well-placed arrow sears through enemy chests, and skilfully timed swords tear limb-and head-from body. Even the fearsome battle troll is felled by a well-placed stab through the top of the skull. Now is the time to gather your Fellowship around you and prepare for a bloody good fight when The Lord of the Rings: War in the North releases later this year.

Tolkien's Middle-earth. Exploring previously unseen lands, storylines and characters as well as those familiar from past feature films, gamers experience expansive co-op gameplay and upgradeable weapons, character customization and development, skills and special abilities.  Gamers must play together or perish as they work to defeat Sauron's forces in the North. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is slated to launch on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Games for Windows in 2011.
