Lord Of The Rings: War In The North Is Cutting Throats, Taking Names

It's a good thing Warner Bros. now owns the rights to both the Lord of the Rings books and movies. It means they can do stuff like this, which is a little bit of both.

The "War in the North" is barely touched upon in either books or the films, but this game makes that setting its home. And it's a home that looks set to be covered in Orc's blood, with even these brief flashes enough to show several limbs being lopped off, some hacking, some slashing and even a bit of <strikepiano wire knife-in-the-throat action at the end.

War in the North is due for PC, 360 and PS3, and will be out next year.
