6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments
Feral Interactive's multiplayer action role-playing game The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is now available for Mac. Developed by Snowblind Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles and PC, the game gives gamers the chance to join the conflict against Sauron as one of a handful of heroes who must hold the line against the darkness.
In The Return of the King, Gandalf alludes to a conflict that took place while the Fellowship were journeying to Mordor: ďWith his far-reaching right hand, Sauron might have done great evil in the North. Yet all that has been averted because a handful of heroes stood in his path...ĒThe Lord of the Rings: War in the North for the Mac retails in North America for US $29.99, £19.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and Ä24.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe.
Inspired by this hint of epic deeds, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is the untold story of three adventurers, Eradan the ranger, Andriel the elf and Farin the dwarf, who form their own fellowship and journey through Middle-earth to protect the North from Sauronís malevolent forces.
Players can embark on the quest alone, playing as each of the characters in turn, or with a friend in co-operative multiplayer mode. They will forge a new path that will take them to hitherto unvisited domains of Middle-earth as well as legendary locations such as Rivendell and the Misty Mountains, encountering both well-loved characters and new arrivals such as Belaram, one of the Great Eagles of Middle-earth, whom they can summon to fight alongside them in battle.
A compelling combination of visceral action and immersive role-playing, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North pits players against trolls, orcs, giant spiders and other monstrous creatures. Every enemy slain helps players upgrade the trioís abilities, be it Eradanís swordsmanship, Andrielís magic or Farinís fearsome skill with an axe.
