Tolkien fans, assemble because there’s a Lord of the Rings game coming to mobile soon. Warner Bros announced today that it’s bringing Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, a free-to-play real-time RPG, to mobile this fall. The game will follow the adventures of Talion (the hero of Shadow of Mordor PC game) through Mordor, and will feature all kinds of familiar characters from both the last PC game and, of course, The Lord of the Rings. Expect to see Celebrimbor, Eltariel, Gimli, Boromir (who will surely die), and more. As you can see from the trailer, it should be quite fun to play, and it will definitely be a treat for fans of Tolkien.
You can pre-register starting today, and if you do, you will receive an exclusive character bundle featuring Ratbag and an Orc starter army. If you pre-register for Android, you’ll get a version of Shelob in her fair form character, playable for the first time. Excited for this one?
