LEGO Lord of the Rings

We've got some details on Warner Bros' Lego: Lord of the Rings. The upcoming blocky adventure game will feature a crafting system where crafty hobbitses and dwarves can "combine and forge" new items with collected Mithril, as well as over 60 playable characters, a lot of different weapons and a huge open world where you'll be able to explore all of Middle Earth. You'll even be able to use the One Ring to enter the scary nightmare reality of the Ringwraiths!

Lego Lord of the Rings is currently scheduled for an October 30 release.
