Good news for Tolkien fans in Europe, the Americas, Oceania, and Southeast Asia – there’s still some time left to pre-register for The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War. NetEase Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s highly anticipated geo-strategic seasonal wargame lets players nab an exclusive in-game goodie bag that contains a portrait of Bilbo Baggins, the Hobbit of the Shire – and only pre-registered players can score this cool reward when the game launches on September 23rd.
Set in the Third Age of Middle-earth, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War offers an impressive and highly faithful rendition of the fictional world of Arda that features some of the franchise’s most iconic locations and diverse landscapes, all represented within the game’s tile-based map. Players can build their armies, expand their reach, and build alliances, choosing among factions like Gondor, Rohan, Lothlórien, Erebor, Mordor and Isengard. Both popular characters and fresh faces will join the war for the One Ring, which you can discover more about in the game’s YouTube channel.
In particular, the Devs in the Tavern series offers a behind-the-scenes look at what you can expect from the game.
The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War will be available to download as a free-to-play game with in-app purchases on the App Store, the Galaxy Store and on Google Play. For all the latest updates be sure to check out the game’s official Facebook page and Discord server.
