There are three playable characters in the upcoming Lord of the Rings: War in the North. Eradan – a human ranger, Fairin – a dwarf champion, and Andriel – the eleven loremaster.
This trailer focuses on Eradan and his ranger abilities. Of the three characters he is the most adaptable with the ability to wield any weapon. He also has a few stealth weapons. The trailer here shows off some of the upgrades and skills that you can do with him.
War in the North takes place in the northern regions of Middle-Earth that were background pieces mentioned in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings novels. 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.
