IMG Previews The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
9:55 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a hands-on preview of Aspyr's The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, based on a recent beta. 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 clip from the preview:

The Return of the King is a third-person hack-and-slash that recapitulates the events and settings of the last of the three Lord of the Rings films. Players have the option of playing any of several characters: Aragorn, the ranger-king, Gandalf, the wizard, and Sam, the hobbit, well as Legolas the elf and Gimli the dwarf. Each character has his own set of levels to experience. For instance, choosing Gandalf’s path will require you to fight through hordes of uruk-hai in Fangorn Forest and defend Minas Tirith’s walls from legions of orcs. Aragorn, fighting alongside Legolas and Gimli, must brave the subterranean Paths of the Dead, while Sam must lead Frodo (and that slimy freak Gollum) through the ruins of Osgiliath, dodging the notice of the Nazgul, and then into Shelob’s lair. All of their destinies converge at Mount Doom in the game’s final levels.
To check out the entire preview including QuickTime movies of the game, please follow the link below.
