Don't Forget About LotR: War In The North

I mean it! It would be a tradgedy if you forgot that Lord of the Rings: War In The North exists, because it looks like it might be alright? Who knows. As we can see in the following trailer, the co-operative action game is certainly looking co-operative and actiony. There's also a new website, where you can read that players will be able to "bloody their axes on a wide range of deadly enemies and traverse both established and never-before-seen locations," while enjoying "impactful character progression". Hooray! I hate limp, soggy character progression, me.

I like the troll that comes bursting through the gate at the end. He screams, doesn't seem to know what to do with himself as the cameras are still rolling, so just screams again.
