LotR: War in the North Launch Vid Has a Bit of Everything

It might be a whole month away from release in Europe, but that hasn't stopped Warner Bros. Interactive from putting out a launch trailer for Lord of the Rings: War in the North, featuring plenty of steel on steel action as your fellowship rises against the forces of the Witch King, Agandaur. And the game does launch in North America next week, in all fairness.

The trailer has a bit of everything (hence the headline), including the great eagle Beleram, who's also a bit handy as aerial support, a fire-breathing Smaug-like dragon, trolls, orcs and a whole lot more besides, as our dwarf, elf and ranger warriors head up north to kick some ass.

Check out the launch trailer for Lord of the Rings: War in the North, which is out on November 1st, 2011 in North America and November 25th, 2011 in Europe.

Getting this for my son, but why such a delay between release dates?

Not too big an issue though as too many good games coming out in next couple of weeks.

And a new BFME would be sweet

Let's just hope that this is better than Battle for Middle Earth 2 and LOTRO Conquest.

I'd prefer a re-done conquest over a BFME. mostly cause RTS games don't play on console as well as the do on PC, and cause anyhting that helps bring back the memories of SW:BF is always a good thing :D.

I hate that this has to wait until AC, jurrasic park, batman, skyrim and halo have to be completed so I can trade them in and not kill my bank account... DAMN YOU BILLS!!!!

There's never been a really good LotR game and this sure as hell ain't it! Just looking at those shitty character animations makes me feel a bit ill. Yuck.

It's a bot post. I suspect the computer that posted it won't be coming back to read your reply.

Looks fun, but there's just too many games that have my money as it is. I'd love to pick it up sometime next year though!
