A new trailer has arrived for LEGO The Lord of the Rings video game, taking the fan-favorite characters from both J.R.R. Tolkien’s literature and Peter Jackson’s trilogy and placing them in the uniquely colorful world of LEGO building blocks. The new trailer was shown at Gamescom in Germany and promises to deliver the same quirky and humorous adventures that the LEGO games are known for.
LEGO The Lord of the Rings takes players along on the adventures of Frodo Baggins and his unlikely fellowship as they set out on a perilous journey to destroy The One Ring and save Middle-earth. Kids, tweens, teens and parents can traverse the Misty Mountains, explore the Mines of Moria, knock on the Black Gate of Mordor, and partake in epic battles with Orcs, Uruk-hai, the Balrog and other formidable foes while harnessing the humor and imagination of LEGO gameplay to solve puzzles and explore Middle-earth. Players will take on the form of their favorite members of the fellowship – Frodo the Hobbit, Aragorn the Ranger, Gandalf the Wizard, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Boromir a Man of Gondor, and Frodo’s Hobbit friends Sam, Merry and Pippin – as they relive the most momentous events from the films.
LEGO The Lord of the Rings will arrive for the PC, Nintendo Wii, Wii U, 3DS, PS Vita, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms later this year.
