Get ready to visit the world of Middle-earth in a way you’ve never experienced before! The folks at TT Games and Warner Bros. have teamed up to bring one of the most beloved stories ever written to life in a way that they’ve become exceedingly good at – LEGO. Today we have the Third Developer Diary entitled “Journeying Forward” – the final of the series. If you’ve missed the other three, well…they are on the site, but for a more in-depth look, here’s the full monty:
Based on The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, LEGO The Lord of the Rings follows the original storylines of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, taking players through the epic story events reimagined with the humor and endless variety of LEGO play. Trusted with the dangerous task to destroy an ancient magical ring that threatens all that is good, Frodo is forced to leave his peaceful home. But the ring wants to be found and the road to Mount Doom, the only place where it can be destroyed, will be perilous and riddled with Orcs and fouler things. To help Frodo, a Fellowship is formed – Aragorn the Ranger, Gandalf the Wizard, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Boromir a Man of Gondor, and Frodo’s Hobbit friends Sam, Merry and Pippin. Players relive the legend through the LEGO minifigures, as they explore wonders, solve timeless riddles, and overcome endless foes in their quest to destroy the Ring.
The game is set to release on November 13th on (deep breath…) Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC. If any of the previous TT Games titles are any indication, and if the trailers hold true to the game, it’s gonna be epic and hilarious.
