Tolkien fans have a good reason to be excited as Spring arrives. The Lord Of The Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth is on the way, and set to hit the Google Play store on May 10th.
You can pre-register today via the official website. If you’re an aficionado on all things involving hobbits, you might have seen a little of this title before.
Out In All Regions Soon
The game received a soft launch in several regions last Autumn, but this will be the first time that most of the world gets the opportunity to try it out.
The game is a free-to-play strategy title that, despite its title, doesn’t restrict you just to the events of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, or even the trilogy and The Hobbit. Heroes of Middle-earth tells some new stories from Tolkien’s world.
In fact, the new trailer shows a tantalizing glimpse of a whole new plotline with a previously-unknown ring. In the course of the story, the player character discovers a lost Ring Of Power, something that’s definitely going to ripple through the kingdoms of Middle-earth.
A New Ring Of Power?
As we know, rings have a history of being more trouble than they’re worth.
The gameplay of The Lord Of The Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth revolves around turn-based RPG combat and heavily features some familiar faces from the Tolkien books. You’ll see the likes of Frodo, Merry, Pippin, and Aragorn, and make use of their particular skills in combat with all kinds of bad guys, from bandits to uruk-hai.
On the other hand, if you’re more interested in the dark side, there’s an opportunity to walk with the orcs and enjoy a rather more Mordor-centred experience. You will be taking the hobbits to Isengard.
Are you eager for some fantasy but feel like something a little different from the usual elves, dwarves and orcs? Maybe check out our news on the newly-arrived Raji: An Ancient Epic.
