It feels kind of strange to be heading back to J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth during this downtime between Peter Jackson's stunningly faithful Lord of the Rings movie adaptations and his currently-in-production take on The Hobbit. The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will take us there though, an M-rated RPG from Snowblind Studios that now has a release date: November 1.
Like any proper journey through Middle-earth, the story in War of the North revolves around a human/elf/dwarf fellowship that has been sent forth to extinguish a great evil. You can get a sense of that basic story in the above trailer. Also, be sure to go check out the recently revealed Collector's Edition.
