Back during our E3 Coverage we revealed the first trailer of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. Now, in graphic and bloody detail, Snowblind Studios has revealed the full cinematic trailer detailing the story behind the clips in the initial release. Sent into battle, the threesome of the dwarf warrior, human sorcerer and elf archer take the fight to Sauron’s forces with a head-on assault on one of his base camps.
One thing that stands out about the new trailer compared to the previous Lord of the Rings games which were tied into the Peter Jackson films is how much darker a tone these have and how brutal the imagery is. Limbs are literally being sliced off. Orcs are being shot in the face with arrows. Blood is flowing.
These feel more in tune with some of the epic battles from the movies than what were delivered to the PlayStation 2 titles all those years ago. Snowblind isn’t worried about producing a family friendly title it looks like and for that, they should be applauded.
Take a peek for yourself at the new trailer and let us know what you think about the new title after the jump.
