The Lord of the Rings: War in the North Walkthrough Video
A new video has been released for the action RPG, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
Shawn Stahl, Designer at Snowblind Studios, narrates as the fellowship of three navigates the harsh mountains of Gundabad and kicks orc tail.
Consisting of a human, an elf, and a dwarf — who are totally not Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli — the fellowship utilizes long and short range attacks, as well as surprise and a multitude of weapons to defeat foul enemies.

The way that troll was brought down reminded me a great deal of a similar scene in Dragon Age 2 — which is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s cinematic; it’s epic; it works.
War in the North has been promoted as the first LOTR game to “embrace the gritty and brutal reality of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth;” based on that video, it may just live up to that promise.
