Developer: Monolith
Release Date: October 7th, 2014

Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4, 360, and PS3

Quote:
This 3rd person action game is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and stars Talion, a human ranger on a quest to avenge the murder of his family by Sauron's forces. The odds aren't exactly in Talion's favour at the outset: he's dead too. Fortunately, a spirit of vengeance is on hand to resurrect the man as a "Wraith", armed with magical powers.

"Players will explore the dark and very personal theme of vengeance in a world where decisions have a consequence, and those consequences persist even after death," Warner Bros' senior vice president for production and development Samantha Ryan commented in a release.





Quote:
"The game introduces new gameplay mechanics to the action genre, creating opportunities for emergent and customised gameplay that will be rewarding for players."

One example of this is the Nemesis System. Talion won't merely slay, but actually strike up an on-going rivalry with certain big name enemies - you'll develop those relationships by making certain decisions, as with crewmate relationships in Mass Effect.
According to Warner Bros, this will allow players "to craft their own battles, enemies and rewards within the dynamic world that remembers and adapts to their choices, delivering a unique experience to every player". You'll also get to explore a version of Mordor that hasn't quite been razed to the ground, and presumably gain fresh insights on the events that led to the founding of the Fellowship of the Ring.

I'm a sucker for LotR games, and have rarely been let down by them..

This, and The Two Tower before it, remain ne of the best movie tie-in games ever in my opinion


Premise for this one sounds cool, War in the North (the last game) was pretty fun albeit a little short.

I love all Middle-Earth game... From the 3 LotR games to the Hobbit one, and then Third Age, The Battle for Middle-Earth... They were great... Too bad the last installments were horrible IMO... Hoping for a nice bounce back Smile

The Third Age was amazing, but War in the North was terrible. I enjoyed playing it when it worked right, but it was extremely glitched. There were odd automatic save points, and events that had to be done in very specific orders, or you wouldn't be able to advance your game.

So here's hoping it'll be more like "The Third Age."

Either way, I'll still buy it. I am a sucker for anything Lord of the Rings.

Return of the King and LOTR Conquest were the best games. I wish LOTR was still playable online, that was great.

What LotR games are good on the 360? I have only played one on the XBOX or GCube but I really liked it.

It seems like the kinda title that they'd show a teaser for at the VGAs....fingers crossed it happens that soon.

Hopefully this is better and more substantial than another Guardians of Middle Earth game like Monolith released a year ago.

Apparently it'll play somewhat like the Batman Arkham games. It'll be on 360, Xbone, ps3 and 4

Oh god I hope not. That style of combat makes no sense to me in a LOTR game...

LOTR Conquest was one of the funnest games I've ever played hands down. Was basically a Star Wars Battlefield for LOTR.
