A New Lord Of The Rings Game Is Available This Week

A new Lord of The Rings game is coming to mobile phones this week. Lord Of The Rings: Rise To War is being released on Thursday!

Lord Of The Rings: Rise To War is an officially licensed mobile strategy game. This means that you can expect to see characters from J.R.R Tolkien’s books – and the artwork even reflects the actors from Peter Jackson’s film trilogy.

“The fate of Middle-earth now falls into your hands. You must pledge allegiance to one of the factions, for a new War of the Ring is on the horizon. At the end of the season, only a faction who occupies Dol Guldur shall claim the final glory.”

The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War website describes this as a ‘geo-strategic seasonal wargame’. In the game, you must choose between a faction on either the Fellowship or Warband side. Then you must build your armies. As you make decisions, battle and take over territory the game’s map will shift and change. According to gameinformer, you can also forge your own magical ring to enhance your powers – just like the Elven smiths who created the One Ring for Sauron.
