Aspyr Announces LOTR: Return of the King
9:25 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Aspyr this morning announced that they will be publishing the Macintosh version of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. Based on New Line Cinema's film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy novel, The Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King game puts the fate of Middle-earth in the hands of the gamer. In the final installment of the blockbuster movie trilogy, players must destroy the One Ring by casting it into the Crack of Doom, freeing Middle-earth from the clutches of the Dark Lord Sauron.

Here's a bit more info on the game:

The Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King will allow players to journey through multiple gameplay paths, taking control of the motion picture trilogy's heroes.

Defend the walls of Minas Tirith as Gandalf, raise the Army of the Dead as Aragorn, Legolas, or Gimli, and with Frodo and Sam, deliver the ring to the fiery depths of Mount Doom.

Based on the environments from the upcoming movie, The Return of the King's third person gameplay will include immersive action and adventure elements set in rich, interactive levels.

An all-new multiplayer co-op mode will let players form their own Fellowship before embarking on their journey through Middle-earth.

Aspyr expects to ship the game in April, 2004. The conversion is being done by Beenox Studios.
