The Lord of the Rings: War in the North trailer for the upcoming RPG swept into E3 2011 on the wings of eagles and the good people at WB Games and Snowblind Studios for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
Players can be one of three character and the co-op features figures to be a critical way to gain a tactical advantage. The story takes place within the overarching storyline of the Lord of the Rings saga.
Look for the Council Cut that breaks in to explain the importance of Beleram, a Great Eagle, and impressive ally during the player's MIddle-earth adventures and appears to be Middle-earth's version of calling in a rolling thunder airstrike.
The war begins on the 1932nd anniversary of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, August 24, 2011.
