Lord of the Rings: War in the North is the new action-RPG from Snowblind Studios, and we've got the latest on the game's combat, skill trees, and levels in this video. Snowblind are the same guys who brought us classics like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath, and this co-op adventure seems to follow along in their footsteps. In the game you can choose to play through as a variety of heroes who are trying to stop Sauron's evil force that's growing in the north of Middle Earth.
As a hardcore Lord of the Rings fan, the fact that they're meshing aspects from the books and movies together seems pretty exciting. Plus, I like the fact that you can customize your hero.What about you? How's Lord of the Rings: War in the North shaping up in your eyes?
