NetEase Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that pre-registrations have opened on all major platforms for The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War, an officially licensed mobile strategy game based on the iconic trilogy of books by J.R.R. Tolkien and OSCAR®-winning film adaptations directed by Peter Jackson. Alongside announcing pre-registration the studios have also revealed that fans can venture to Middle Earth on their mobile devices beginning on September 23.
Players can now pre-register on the App Store, Google Play Store, Galaxy Store and the game’s official website to be notified when the title is officially launched. Pre-registrants will also receive an exclusive in-game gift pack after release, which includes a special portrait of the Hobbit of the Shire, Bilbo Baggins.
In this Geo-Strategic Seasonal Wargame, players will embark on new adventures to build armies for conquest and strategically expand their territory in pursuit of the One Ring. Set in the Third Age of Middle-earth, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War offers an immersive and faithful rendition of the fictional world of Arda and its vast array of characters – from the Ranger of the North, Aragorn, to the Elven Lord of Rivendell, Elrond.
Based on their choices to side with good or evil, players can build either Fellowships or Warbands, and collaborate with other members on razor-sharp attack plans and deeply fortified defenses against their rivals. Fans will cultivate the bonds of these alliances on the battlefield, all with the goal of expanding territories via the game’s tile-based map design. With the diverse terrains and waters of Middle-earth divided and represented by these tiles, each action-packed victory will claim another piece for the alliance, while each defeat will result in a loss of land.
These complex alliance-building and tile-based systems inherent to The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War will set courageous adventurers on a path to not only outwit and defeat their enemies, but also seize the ultimate prize: The One Ring. The title’s state-of-the-art immersive gameplay and simulated warfare will engulf fans in grippingly realistic consequences to their actions in-game, all inspired by masterful storytelling.
The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War will launch on September 23, 2021. Visit the game’s official site at https://www.lotr-risetowar.com/ to pre-register today..
