LEGO Lord of the Rings
LEGO Lord of the Rings Delayed? Plus, Pre-Order Bonuses Outlined

GameStop has outlined the pre-order bonuses it’s offering for LEGO: Lord of the Rings and has revealed a potential delay in the process.

The latest bricktastic action adventure from Traveller’s Tales, LEGO Lord of the Rings was down for an October 30th release in the US. However, that date has now shifted to November 12th, according to the retailer.

In the blurb for the game’s pre-order bonuses, GameStop says, “Pre-order LEGO Lord of the Rings through November 12 and you will receive a special LOTR Middle-earth Weapons & Magical Items Pack with purchase.”

These items include The Whirlwind Axe, a Troll Mace Elrond's Circlet and more. Plus, when you pre-order LEGO Lord of the Rings, you'll receive the Elrond of the 2nd Age, Lord of Rivendell mini-figure. All of which is cool.

The delay, however, is not. We’ve contacted Warner Bros. for confirmation.

[Cheers Jack]

Interesting that it gets delayed, but at the same time so many games are coming out maybe it's a better spot. Although I think a Lego game should come out right before Christmas.

I thought this was mid-November anyway, that's the date amazon has for it in the uk, and has for weeks now.

I honestly thought this game was coming out in December. Looking forward to it, but with everything else coming out, I think it may have to wait.

Lego Lord of the rings is never late, nor is it early, it arrives exactly when it means to.

Thanks for the nod, Lee!

Oh, and by the way 11/12/12 is a Monday, and I re-checked, the release date is listed as Tuesday, 11/13/12. (And someone should think about changing it in the game info section up on the right there...;))

With the Dark Souls expansion coming out today, I needed this game next week. It was supposed to be the sweet to that game's salty. How will I ease the pain now?

I love Legos. I have many sets and most of the games. However, I haven't purchased a Lego game in a while. I keep looking into this one and feel as though I should buy it seeing it combines two awesome ideas. The only thing stopping me from a purchase is that in two or three years they will release one with more characters and the Hobbit included. I love the tales of middle earth but I still feel as though I can wait for all the movies in one $60 bundle. :( Oh the many choices to make...

@#20 - The Hobbit is now intended to be a trilogy of films itself, so there will be enough material for it to have its own LEGO game. ;)

People who wanted this game, already knew this game was delayed. That has been public for a while now. Glad it was delayed though. The new release date fits better, it is kind of hard for a LEGO game to compete with ACIII.

Why the thumbs down for #1? He didn't say first and paraphrased a quote from the films. I guess I just don't understand people. This should be cool although Lego games really need a shake up with their formula.

@21: Two words: Complete Saga. I purchased both the original Lego Star Wars and the sequel and a little after both games got combined into one. Don't get me wrong, I ended up picking up Complete Saga as well, but I have a strange feeling this will happen. Also they combined games with Lego Indy 2 and if they ever release Pirates 5 and 6 I have no doubt a complete saga is inbound. And yes, I am aware of how much content is in The Hobbit films. At sometime I am pretty sure both the LOtR and Hobbit games will be meshed together in an ultimate edition. No offense to you. I just think i'll wait.

Also, I will most likely receive some thumbs downs for this, but I would rather start getting games for my WiiU. I have always been more of a Nintendo user and although I love my Xbox, I am fed up with Microsoft. Between the red rings, ruined discs, poor customer support, and the many hardware problems I have had with it I feel as though Microsoft really let me down. I only bought my 360 for Halo and Mass Effect and seeing the WiiU is getting Mass Effect and the next Halos are going to be on their new console, I don't see much of a point buying games for my 360 anymore. Just my honest opinion. Go ahead and hate.

@29 Can you confirm the Halo games will be on Wii U as well? I am under the impression Halo was, is, and will be an Xbox exclusive.

Excuse me, when I said their new console I thought I was refering to the new Xbox. I can see now by reading my post how that can be confused as me saying Halo was being released for the WiiU. No, Halo will never be on a Nintendo product. (Unless you count the tech demo of Halo DS which was never produced by Microsoft or Bungie and was more or less a game pitch.) It is and hopefully will always be an Xbox product. I love Halo and own each one, 4 being the only exception seeing it comes out in two weeks. Halo 5 and 6 would be the only reason I get the new Xbox. I see no other reason. Again, my apologies.

@30: Even I understood what he meant. Xbox is where Halo belongs and it works perfectly. I'm kinda confused why you assumed he meant the WiiU was getting it. He never said that. Assuming Zalabar is a guy, not a girl.

@28/29 - Wow, dude, I didn't realize suggesting you pick up this game would lead to you griping about the XBOX and bringing up Halo 4.

Sorry I said anything.

Enjoy your WiiU.

@#37 - Yeah, I know, man, but I wanna add it to my achievement checklists here on the site...

Y'know, in anticipation?

C'mon, I can't be the only one kinda excited about this game...

With Lego Batman 2, you got the pre-order bonus if you bought the game within the first week of release. I was just in store yesterday to pay it off and was told I could pick it up at the Midnight release of Assassins Creed 3.
