Lord of the Rings has been a successful franchise in the video game world. There were a few games before, but Peter Jackson's film trilogy was a massive boost for titles set in Middle-earth. The PS2 especially has some gems, with the fan-favourite movie-licensed The Two Towers and Return of the King to name but a couple.
The PC, however, has been a stable home for Tolkien's universe, with 2019's Journeys in Middle-earth and the upcoming Return to Moria. The PC is also home to a less well-known game set in Middle-earth, which may be familiar if you're a Total War fan. It might not be an official release, but it's a mod that's recreated Tolkien's world immaculately - Lord of the Rings: Total War. The remastered version is currently available to download.
Check out the upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum below - releasing soon for PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
Dagovax Games is a developer that specialises in mods for the Rome: Total War series. They released The Lord of the Rings:Total War on July 26th, and it's an absolute must if you're a fan of both Tolkien and strategy games. Using the Total War template, Dagovax has recreated the complete map of Middle-earth, complete with impressively customised cities and locations like Minas Tirith and Helm's Deep. Check out some gameplay below!
The game boasts beautiful looking campaign and battle maps, and you'll be able to take part in both major and minor battles from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. There's also the Free People's campaign, in which the player aids the ring bearer from The Shire to Mordor.
With The Lord of the Rings: Gollum delayed until further notice, fans could do a lot worse than play this mod to get their fix of Middle-earth while they wait.
