EA Are Making Another Lord Of The Rings Video Game

EA Are Making Another Lord Of The Rings Video Game

Over the years, there have been many, many Lord of the Rings games. I mean, it’s a massive franchise - it’s what you’d expect. A number of studios have had their hands on it over the years, from Melbourne House and Vivendi Games, to more recently, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, but it’s just been announced that over a decade on since their last game, EA are once again working on a new LOTR title.

Their last game, The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, came out many moons ago in 2009, and although Warner Bros. have released some pretty great titles in the years since (see Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and its sequel), there’s no doubt that nostalgic fans will be happy to see EA take over again. There’s one rather large catch though - it’s a mobile game.

Before we go on, be sure to take a look at this amazing custom LEGO build of Mordor below.

Did you hear that? That was the sound of 95% of readers clicking away from this article. We can’t sit here and pretend that mobile games can carry the same level of hype as their PC and console counterparts, but this one still sounds pretty interesting. The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth is a “collectible RPG”, which promises “high-fidelity graphics”, as well as “immersive storytelling”, turn-based combat, and “a wide roster of characters from across the vast universe of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit”. 

“We are incredibly excited to partner with The Saul Zaentz Company and Middle-earth Enterprises on the next generation of mobile role-playing games,” Malachi Boyle, vice president of mobile RPG for Electronic Arts said in a press release. “The team is filled with fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and each day they bring their tremendous passion and talents together to deliver an authentic experience for players. The combination of high-fidelity graphics, cinematic animations, and stylised art immerses players in the fantasy of Middle-earth where they’ll go head-to-head with their favourite characters.”  

“We are thrilled to be working with EA once again, this time to bring a mobile game solely inspired by Middle-earth as described in the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien to its fans,” said Fredrica Drotos, chief brand and licensing officer for Saul Zaentz Company’s Middle-earth Enterprises. “It’s an honour to work with the talented Capital Games team whose knowledge and love of the lore is palpable throughout.”

The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth is expected to enter “limited regional beta testing” this summer, so hopefully it won’t be too long to wait until we can see the game in action.
