Warner Bros has confirmed the latest action RPG set in the Tolkien universe will be on shelves before the year is out.
The Lord of the Rings: War In The North will be released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in November, and is expected to carry a BBFC rating of 18.
Warner has also announced a Collector's Edition will be available at launch. The SKU will feature a behind-the-scene DVD, art book, downloadable content and more.
The game sees players explore the rarely-visited Northern regions of Middle Earth in a brand new storyline that takes place around the events of the novel and th films.
A unique three-player co-op system is the key selling point, with players tasked with managing the different strengths and weaknesses of the human, elf and dwarf that make up their squad.
