LOTR: Rise to War is an action strategy game based on JRR Tolkien’s fantasy trilogy and the OSCAR-winning films that followed. The gameplay challenges players to capture their opponents’ territory and gain enough control to take over the One Ring. In order to fully immerse players in the Third Age of Middle-earth, battles will take place at iconic locations in Arda and involve familiar characters such as Aragon and Elrond.
In this war simulation, players can choose which side they want to fight for by supporting the Warbands or the Fellowship. Once this is established, players can form alliances with like-minded individuals to increase the strength of their offensive and defensive attacks. Stronger, more fortified colonies will need more power to win and will also be able to produce more powerful attacks. Likewise, well-built and more diverse armies will have more power over smaller and less developed armies. Each terrain style will be divided into tiles which can be conquered in victory and lost in defeat. A player’s power increases with each territory tile he gains.
Game developers NetEase Games and WB Games have created LOTR: Rise to War with immersive scenes and an inspiring story to get involved in. The official launch was announced for September 23, 2021 and will be available to play on the Apple Store, Google Play, and the Galaxy Store.
