Electronic Arts has released new information on its Lord of the Rings game, which is being developed for the PlayStation 2. Players will be able to use Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas as they battle orcs and interact with other characters from the film. The game takes place in a full 3D environment, and it features a tactical battle system that forces players to be a little more strategic with their attacks.

Lord of the Rings is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 2 in the fall, alongside the second movie in the series. Additional announcements regarding other platforms will be made in the coming months.
