Product Description

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a co-op Action RPG, from the developers of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, that immerses you and your friends in a brutal new chapter in the War of the Ring. Set in Middle-earth during the time of the War of the Ring, but separate from its events, War in the North is inspired by both the Lord of the Rings books and movies allowing players to draw their swords, notch their axes, bend their bows and raise their staffs against a wide range of deadly enemies and traverse both established and never-before-seen locations. The result is a journey that is both epic and intimate, familiar yet unexpected.

Become One of the Unknown Heroes on Middle-earth

"With his far reaching rich hand Sauron might have done great evil in the North. Yet all that has been averted because a handful of heroes stood in his path." - Gandalf the White

In The lord of the Rings: War in the North you are one of these heroes. Inspired by events from the famous book trilogy and their retelling in Peter Jackson's films, the game features stunning visuals, brutally realistic combat, a unique and compelling new story, and innovative cooperative gameplay that pits you and your friends against the dark forces of Middle-earth. In this game you will form your own fellowship and fight against Sauron's forces at the North.

Playable Characters and Co-op Gameplay

The gameplay in The lord of the Rings: War in the North is all about cooperation. Players will take on the role of either Eradan, a Dúnedain ranger, Andriel, an Elf or Farin, a Dwarf. Each will have special abilities tied to their race - for example, a Dúnedain can combine different objects to create unique items for use or sale in-game; Elves possess superior sight, which will lead you to shortcuts and recognition of trouble ahead; and Dwarves have the ability to notice weaknesses at the walls and break them in order to find secret caves with different loots. Each race with have character class possibilities as well as legendary weapons. Once characters are established, they must band together in multiplayer action, working together to combat hordes enemies. These enemies include goblins pouring from their strongholds in the Misty Mountains, Uruk-hai from Isengard, savage wargs in the wilderness, giant spiders infesting Mirkwood, massive trolls and most dramatic and dangerous of all, bosses like Agandaûr, a deadly Black Númenórean lord who long ago was tempted and turned by the lies of Sauron.

Along your journey you will also cross paths with Lord of the Rings characters familiar and not so familiar, fulfilling little known but important events of the wider War of the Ring. These include: Aragorn's scouting party of the North, while Frodo recovers in Rivendell from the wound he suffered at Weathertop; missions with the Elven sons of Elrond, Elladan and Elrohir; the responsibilities of the wizard, Radagast the Brown; encounters with the great eagles of the Misty Mountains and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fantastic 19 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Definitely worth the extra, going to be worth a lot in as little as a year if you want to sell it on but a great addition to any LOTR collector if you want to keep it. Especially good feature is the included soundtrack because the music in the game is brilliant. In regards to the game itself there has never been a better LOTR or any console based RPG ever made. Brilliant combat, graphics, lore and story. Albeit a bit short for hardened players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 20 Oct 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Collector's Edition
I'm not the RPG kind of gamer but I LOVED this game! I'm a fan of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and I had so much fun playing this game. Even when you complete the story you have the choice to play it all again whilst keeping your level, equipment etc. My step sister and I had many fun times playing this game and I recommend this game to any gamer who is up for adventure!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice collectors piece 10 Jan 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A bargain for the price I payed for it. It's a shame that European release didn't have a steelbook case.
The statue looks a bit cheap, but still a nice collectors piece.
