“The enemy knows you have entered here. What hope you had in secrecy is now gone.”
– Celeborn, The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings
Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Snowblind Studios are releasing a new vignette for their upcoming Action RPG, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
Middle-earth is home to creatures more fearsome than orcs. More cunning than trolls. More loathsome than giant spiders.
Lurking in the forgotten tombs of Barrow-downs, dwelling amongst the fallen dead, the Barrow-wights wait under reign of the Barrow-wight Lord. Revealed in this new video, the Barrow-wight Lordhas overtaken this sacred Ranger burial ground. He uses magic and minions most foul to spread the rule of evil in the darkness and death of his lair.
The battle cry of the dwarf, the sword of the human, the staff of the elf – all must be used to best this most despicable boss and its hordes of skeletal servants. The Barrow-wight Lord uses his powers to pit man against man, friend against friend – only the strongest of Fellowships will best him.
