The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is an intense Action RPG video game for up to three players, based on the novels and films of The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Gamers battle in the war-torn lands of Northern Middle-earth, on a quest that Gandalf himself deemed imperative to the success of the One Ring’s journey toward Mordor – to defeat Sauron’s forces in the North. Through innovative online, interdependent co-op play for three players who form their own Fellowship and the aid of the great eagle Beleram, this game breaks new ground as the first The Lord of the Rings video game to embrace the mature and brutal nature of Middle-earth. Gamers must play together or perish as they work through previously unseen lands, storylines and characters as well as those familiar from past feature films.
Middle-earth: Shadow of War™ is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor™, winner of more than 50 industry awards, including 2015 Game Developers Choice Awards’ Game of the Year, Outstanding Innovation in Gaming at the 2015 D.I.C.E. Awards and the BAFTA for Game Design.
