Pack Art Available for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Snowblind Studios today revealed the box art for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North .

With the nearly insurmountable weight of the survival of Middle-earth on their shoulders, the Fellowship of three– human, elf and dwarf– prepare for the journey ahead.

Traversing the territories of this little known region, the Fellowship must work in concert– battling limitless hordes, testing the limits of the brutalities of war, protecting each other at every turn– if Middle-earth is to be saved. Looking to the blood-stained path that lies ahead, the Fellowship must not waver in the face of impending death.
