Fantasy hack-n-slash The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be released in November 2011, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed.
War in the North takes gamers to the snow-filled plains of Gunabad, where you’ll battle against the forces of Agandur, who just so happens to be The Dark Lord Sauron’s “cruellest ally.”
Players will be able to pick from three different characters spanning various races, including a human, elf and dwarf, each possessing their own unique combat skills. War in the North is a decidedly bloodier affair than previous LotR games, with gamers able to hack off limbs and send buckets of claret spraying all over the shop.
The game will be released for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.
