All Articles: The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
November is here, and with it, the Fall gaming rush goes into overdrive.
This week sees the release of the PS3-exclusive Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Naughty Dog’s latest Nathan Drake adventure promises to be its biggest yet. In fact, it’s so big, it’s off the charts (rimshot).
The rest of this week’s new releases are a throwback to a simpler time including…
- A high definition remake of GoldenEye, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded (PS3, Xbox 360)
- Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic meeting for the first time in Sonic Generations (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
- The Lord of the Rings: War in the North (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), another LOTR action-RPG.
- Just when you thought it was safe to go in the water, there’s another Jaws game, Jaws: Ultimate Predator (3DS, Wii)
- And finally, there’s a new Oregon Trail game for the 3DS and Wii
For the non-throwback minded, there’ll also be an NCIS (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) game available in stores this week.
Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Even though most online retailers still list an August 24 release date for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, WB Games has officially announced that the game will be available in North American store shelves on November 1. Australian gamers will get it a day later on November 2 and the game will be available in Europe later in the week on November 4.
While this delay means gamers won’t be able to lead their fellowship into battle anytime soon, it does give them more time to save up for the absolutely insane War in the North Collector’s Edition, which will also be available on November 1.
Despite featuring a stereotypical fantasy narration, the latest trailer for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North really goes at the heart of what friendship and courage are all about. Although completely rendered in CGI, it gets you amped for the story and excited for the co-operative gameplay.
War in the North will hit PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on August 24. You can get an arrow quiver if you pre-order it.
The awesome quiver to your left contains the game, an art book, three songs from the soundtrack, and a behind-the-scenes DVD about the making of the game. The Xbox 360 version also comes with a Ranger XBL Avatar, while the PlayStation 3 version includes a Theme Pack. I got to check out War in the North at the last two PAXes, and I have to say, it does look pretty good. If you’re a Rings fan, this is one collector’s edition you may not become ashamed of.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North releases on August 24 for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
