I know Call of Duty is a big title, but let me assure you…there is somebody much, much bigger. Translated more often than nearly any other text, I’m talking about The Lord of the Rings. This morning we get a new translation courtesy of the folks at TT games and Warner Bros – LEGO The Lord of the Rings! Shipping for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, DS, 3DS, and Vita, this title brings a family-friendly and signature humor to the epic tale of the Fellowship. Here’s what you can expect to pit your plastic-block heroes against in this title:
Family members of all ages will enjoy playing together in easy drop-in, drop-out co-op gameplay, as they partake in the iconic Helms Deep Battle, explore The Shire, escape the fiery pits of Mount Doom, and battle against Shelob, the Nazgûl, and the Ringwraiths, all while solving puzzles, and collecting and using a variety of weaponry and magical items, including the Light of Eärendil, Elven rope, swords, and bows.
If you’d like to take the game for a spin, you can tackle the epic Helms Deep Battle on the PC right now! To celebrate the launch, we have some great new screens and a trailer to share. Look for our review very soon. Enjoy the trailer and screens.
