The Return of the King announced

EA officially announces the development of the second action game in its movie-inspired the Lord of the Rings series.


Electronic Arts has today announced that it will release The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King this fall. Based on New Line Cinema's upcoming movie of the same name, the game will see players walking in the shoes of a number of the movie trilogy's heroes, including Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Sam, and Frodo. There will be multiple paths through the game for players to choose from, and an all-new multiplayer cooperative mode will allow a currently undisclosed number of players to journey through Middle-earth together.

We'll bring you more information on The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King as soon as it becomes available.
