BioWare’s Dragon Age: Origins 2 won’t be the only mature fantasy RPG on the market next year, as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has revealed that it is working on a new action role-playing game based on the world of The Lord of the Rings.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is described as a “mature RPG” that “advances the RPG paradigm through innovative online, interdependent co-op play for up to three players who form their own Fellowship to fight Sauron’s forces in the North.”
“Utilizing the award-winning and passionate development team at Snowblind Studios,” Warner. Bros. Interactive president Martin Tremblay said in a statement, “we are looking to evolve the RPG experience and deliver The Lord of the Rings game fans have been waiting for.”
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will rage on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011.
