Lord of the Rings: War in the North Has Ten Days

With Skyrim-lust whipping fantasy role-playing game fans into a frothy puddle, perhaps November 1 is the best possible time for Warner Bros. to release The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.


As much as I trust Snowblind Studios to develop a compelling action role-playing game and as intriguing as the concept of an officially sanctioned new Lord of the Rings tale is, it's going up against one of the biggest role-playing releases of this console generation.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North hits North America on November 1 (the launch trailer here is for the UK version). Ten days later a lot of people stop playing it.

LotR War in the North has coop.

Skyrim does not.

Ill go with War in the North.

Im sick and tired of RPGs being single player, I enjoy big open worlds or epic fantasy stories with other people, sharing it with them not wandering around as the lone hero.
