LEGO Lord of the Rings Trailer promises greatness


Holy Crap! This looks good. LEGO Gandalf vs LEGO Balrog.

Just shut up and watch the trailer.

Developed by TT games and due out this fall, the game is based on the epic fantasy film trilogy directed by Peter Jackson, and follows the events of The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.

As such, LEGO Lord of the Rings offers a massive adventure packed full of iconic locations, including the Misty Mountains, Mines of Moria, the Black Gate and many more as gamers battle against Orcs, Uruk-hai, the Balrog and other creatures plucked from J.R.R. Tolkien’s mammoth tale.

Furthermore, all your favourite characters will be immortalized in miniature LEGO form, including Frodo Baggins, Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir and Aragorn. LEGO Lord of the Rings is scheduled to ship for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, DS and 3DS.

“We are huge aficionados of The Lord of the Rings franchise and are incredibly excited to put our special LEGO family-friendly touch on this classic fantasy adventure,” commented Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “We’ve taken what fans are familiar with and love about The Lord of the Rings films and combined it with the playful LEGO style, which makes the story and gameplay accessible to gamers of all ages.”
