War In the North will probably be quite focused on co-operative play

Developers Snowblind Studios, along with Warner Bros. today announced the latest addition to the growing list of Lord of the Rings games.

The new game, titled “War in the North” is being developed by the same folk as Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and will be an action-RPG featuring co-op support. It will feature locations and narratives familiar to fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels and their big screen-counterparts, as well as original storylines.

Martin Tremblay, president of Warner Bros. Interactive had this to say:

“With The Lord of the Rings: War in the North we are taking a mature approach to the widely celebrated property with authentic portrayals of battles and all new storylines.

Utilising the award-winning and passionate development team at Snowblind Studios, we are looking to evolve the RPG experience and deliver The Lord of the Rings game fans have been waiting for.”

The game is slated for a release in 2011 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Check the official website for more information.
