Fairin, the dwarven champion, is one of three playable characters from the new Lord of the Rings: War in the North game.
This trailer shows some of his brawler abilities. He can use a crossbow, but that’s about it for range. He’s mostly for melee weapons and his powerful attacks let him handle multiple enemies at once. Secondarily, he can mine for gems.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novels briefly mentioned the war against Mordor occurring in other areas of Middle-Earth. War in the North takes place in snowy north that was mentioned a couple of times. Some regions that will appear in the game are the Ettenmoors, Fornost, Mirkwood and Mount Gundabad. You’ll also see more familiar areas like the Shire and Rivendell.
Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be available on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on November 1st, 2011.
