A new trailer descends from the skies for Lord Of The Rings: War In The North, the action RPG expected at some point next month. A game we do rather make a habit of forgetting about. But that’s a silly thing to do, since first of all, it’s a large scale RPG and there are still too few of those, and secondly, it’s from Snowblind who once created the fun-if-somewhat-peculiar Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance. They’ve since been doing some rather odd bits and bobs on console, but they’re back, and this time it’s a cross-platform jobbie. You can see the CGI trailer below.

We will certainly be bringing you more info about this one soon.
