NetEase and Warner Bros. have lifted the veil on their next collaboration: a new Lord of the Rings mobile game. It’s called Lord of the Rings: Rise to War.
Located in the middle-aged third age, which began with Sauron’s first defeat and ended with his final and actual defeat by Fraton’s fellow brother, Gandalf and friends, the game is presented as a “visually beautiful and completely faithful rendering ”, containing characters and places from the original trilogy.
Details are thin on the ground
In terms of details, that’s about it, apart from vague references to “the use … of strategic combat skills”, which suggests that we are considering a strategy game.
We also don’t know when it will be released, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it launch in 2021. In any case, we’ll keep you posted.
