Lego Lord Of The Rings game teaser trailer released…

June 1st, 2012 by Max O. Miller Comments

This is just too…ah…precious. In the coming of Lego purchasing the rights to practically everything, a Tolkien-themed brick game outing was an obligatory step toward making our wallets weep with poverty. So details include:

  • Explore all of the open-world of Middle-earth and experience epic battles with Orcs, Uruk-hai, the Balrog, the Witch-king, and other fearsome creatures.
  • Wield the power of the Palantír or Seeing-stone (‘one that looks far-away’), and jump between multiple storylines.
  • Experience the LEGO The Lord of the Rings heroes come to life in an all new way, as they deliver the dialogue from the films.
  • Collect, combine and forge new items in the Blacksmith Shop using Mithril, the most precious metal in Middle-earth.
  • Discover and unlock over more than 60 playable characters, including Frodo, Aragorn, Gandalf, and many others.
  • Collect and use a variety of weaponry and magical items, including the Light of Earendil, Elven rope, swords, and bows.
  • Play with family and friends with easy access drop-in, drop-out gameplay option.

This will encompass the richly immersing universe of the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, yet the trailer does raise one questions: what about The Hobbit? Will that be the follow up gaming installments and if so, will Lego follow suit and do their typical combo all-in-one game later on? Only time will tell, but one thing is clear…it will definitely have a cave troll.

The macabre Max Odysseus Miller is a savant of popular culture and lifelong consumer of nerd Kool-Aid. As the self-titled Simon Cowell of science-fiction and fantasy, he may be infamously critical (and suffer from severe Twilight Tourette's), but does enjoy long walks through the comic shop and candlelit cult horror movies. When the outside world grows grim, he retires to his dimly-lit Batcave of remedial memorabilia and retro gaming to make another failed attempt at genetically reviving the velociraptor. Taking his vows at the altar of all things Harrison Ford, he also dedicates sacrifices to his unhealthy obsession with the Joker, his unnatural crush on Harley Quinn, and his bizarre affinity for the second-tier Spider-Man villain, Mysterio. When he’s not daydreaming of living in Middle-Earth, you can most often find him swaddled within copious amounts of literature and sketchbooks or practicing the ancient art of blogging at The Nerd With Nothing Better To Do. Complete with zombie contingency plan, his base of operations resides somewhere just outside of the Romero-beloved Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
