Three new video vignettes for Lord of the Rings: War in the North have popped out of a Hobbit-hole today, featuring the game's three-strong fellowship of heroes - Farin the Dwarf, Andriel the Elf and Human Ranger, Eredan - and their upgradeable skills, their individual skills and methods of defence they use.

Each trailer looks at the actions and abilities of the three characters in combat, showing their long and short range attacks, as they fight against some of Middle-earth's most nefarious and evil creatures and races. Farin, Andriel and Eredan have their very own set of abilities and moves, as well as their individual skill tree for upgrading their various skills.

It's all in the new set of videos below, showing you the combat and customisation options for each character, ahead of Lord of the Rings: War in the North's release on November 22nd in North Americe and November 25th in Europe.

It looks like an interesting blend of RTS and RPG/TBS in the form of KotOR game-play. Looks beastly. Andriel is my favorite so far.

OMG this looks so awesome, but didnt the elfs have bow instead of a wand?
I just hope they dont shut down the servers after 1 year just like they did with conquest, cause i loved that game.

@ 4 The publisher isn't EA, it's Warner Brothers, meaning the game isn't using EA servers which means that online won't be shut down due to inactivity.

I feel like I'm one of the few people getting this game on release day. I can't wait!

I would buy this but just to many other games I would rather get. Will definitely get it but probably some time in the new year.

I have been on the fence with this game because I didn't enjoy the other LOTR titles recently. It looks like it may be fun, and the fact if you buy Batman at Kmart this week they provide a 30 gaming coupon and an additional 10 dollar LOTR gaming coupon I might have to get it just to not waste the extra 10 off (plus kmart is giving a $20 gaming coupon with this game too).

I'm likeing the screen shots, but honestly the last LTR game was a complete waste of money and it leaves me unsure about this one.

Disappointed you can't create your own character, but still looks like a great game.

I REALLY do want to get this day 1 to support my favorite movie series (LOTR, obviously), but I just don't have the money. I actually don't have any :(. I got MW3 Hardened paid off and have to "hope" I get the rest for Christmas. If this gets solid reviews, it might just make my Christmas list, though. :D.
