The latest Lord of the Rings game has been completely under my radar since it was first announced. The last few games in this universe (with the exception of the MMORPG) weren’t the greatest. However, I have to say that War in the North from Snowblind Studios is looking pretty great. It has the look and feel of an Elder Scrolls game, and the three player co-op reminds me of an MMO like, well, I guess Lord of the Rings. Oh, and there’s a good bit of lootage a la Diablo. Sounds like a powerful mix.

I’m sure plenty gamers are going to love smashing orcs to a bloody pulp with two other buddies, and the trailer below gives a good first impression of the co-op system.

Who’s excited to jump back into Middle Earth and make some orc-kebabs?
