GameInfo: The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a role-playing video game in development by Snowblind Studios. It is based on the events taking place in the northern regions of Middle-earth in the background of the main story of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, more specifically in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings film trilogy universe. Players will take control of a hero of the war, and will be able to play through the game alone or co-operatively with other players.

Critic Score
GamingBolt: “Lord of the Rings games have been noticeably absent from the gaming industry for some time now. What’s that? Aragorn’s Quest you say? Never heard of it. Moving on. Once the movies came to an end, the games followed suit. Now, here we are in the year 2011, and a new Lord of the Rings RPG/hack ‘n slash game has made its way out (coincidentally, LotR will be back in the movie industry as well with The Hobbit releasing next year). The best part? It’s made by the same studio that brought us the wonderful titles Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norath.” Read Full Review 80/100
Game Revolution: If you pay attention to the narrative in LotR, you may notice small mentions here and there of the war in the North, which was actually a significant crisis of its own. Enter Snowblind Studios, who have created The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, so that we may experience this side-story for ourselves. Read Full Review 80/100
Gamesradar: Eradan, the human ranger, drew back his bowstring and unleashed a flurry of arrows at the charging orcs. His shots hit their target, though the foes continued to rush. Some stopped to fire off ranged attacks of their own, but their missiles bounced harmlessly off the elven Loremaster Andriel’s protective magical shield. Finally, once they were close enough, the dwarven champion Farin met them on the field of battle, hacking apart the orcs. He spun around, slicing down the smaller goblins in a powerful swing, before finishing off the larger enemies with the help of his allies.  Read Full Review 70/100
