In anticipation of its release at the beginning of November (though apparently the end of November for us UK folk), Snowblind have released three new trailers for action RPG Lord of the Rings: War In The North. Each trailer focuses on a different hero: a dwarf champion, an elf lore-master and a human ranger. I always think of elves as ranging, so I was a little confused for a moment, but then I remembered that human rangers are quite the notables in Middle Earth. So, videos of ranged combat, close combat, lots of dodge-rolling and horrid hairy spiders below.
That would be a lore-master. Lore-mastery allows the firing of deadly light from a stick, making it very much like laser-mastery.
That’s a champion, identified by his beard and axe.
And that is a ranger, identified by a preference for archery and hoods.
The release date, which has shifted about a lot over the months, is November 1st in Northern America, November 2nd in Australia and November 4th in Europe. Except the UK. The 25th in the UK. No idea why.
