Earlier this week, a fully armoured orc ran a 10k race raising thousands of dollars for charity. While that may have left us in “urak-hai-spirits”, we’ve got some even more exciting Lord of the Rings news for you.
If you’re anything like us, then you simply cannot get enough Lord of the Rings content. Movies, series, games, memes…just throw it all at us. For those reasons, you can imagine our excitement when we heard about the latest mobile LOTR game to arrive on Android and iOS – Lord of the Rings: Rise to War (also known as “Lord of the Rings: War”).
LOTR: Rise to War, as the name suggests, is a factional military strategy game. Set during the iconic third-age, players recruit legendary leaders from the movies and books (Aragorn, Legolas, Galadriel, Gandalf, Frodo) and lead them into war. Brought to you by NetEase Games and Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, the mobile title will feature ever-changing geo-seasonal warfare for evolving factional dynamics.
For more information about the game, we recommend checking out the accompanying three-part web series “Devs in the Tavern”. In the latest instalment, they discuss factional warfare as well the recruitment of the popular units.
The chance to escape back to Middle Earth one more time is an opportunity that we certainly won’t be passing up on. Let us know if you’d like us to review the game. As Gandalf once said, “I shall not say do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.” And any new LOTR games bring us many, many happy tears.
