Lord Of The Rings: War In The North Trailer Is Cutting Throats, Taking Names

It's a good thing Warner Bros now owns the rights to both the Lord of the Rings books and movies. It means they can do stuff like this, which is a little bit of both.

The "War in the North" is barely touched upon in either books or the films, but this game makes that setting its home. And it's a home that looks set to be covered in Orc's blood, with even these brief flashes enough to show several limbs being lopped off, some hacking, some slashing and even a bit of piano wire action at the end.

War in the North is due for PC, 360 and PS3, and will be out next year.


    Christ I hope that's game engine stuff... because it looks beautiful.

    Well, that told me precisely nothing about the game itself. :P

    It looks a hell of a lot like the trailers for Dragon Age

    Looks awesome, but I can't but think that it's a perversion of the Lord of the Rings.

      In what way? If they do it right it can cannon with Tokien's lore

    Hmm surprisingly that does look good. A lot better than the other LOTR games.. (in my opinion anyway)
