Highlighting the strategic, co-operative experience of the three players, the fellowship uses long and short range attacks, as well as surprise and a multitude of weapons to defeat foul enemies. Taking a patrol by surprise and infiltrating an enemy encampment, the heroes then catch a bleak view of the size and scope of the army they must one day face, before picking up their weapons and pushing on.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is an intense Action-RPG video game based on the renowned works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Through innovative online, interdependent co-op play for up to three players who form their own Fellowship, the game breaks new ground as the first The Lord of the Rings video game to embrace the gritty and brutal reality of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth. Exploring previously unseen lands, storylines and characters as well as those familiar from past feature films, gamers experience expansive co-op gameplay and upgradeable weapons, character customization and development, skills and special abilities. Gamers must play together or perish as they work to defeat Sauron’s forces in the North. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Games for Windows.
