The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest Revealed

11
Fresh off Warner Bros. Interactive's acquisition of the Lord of the Rings license, a new game set in Middle Earth is on the way from the publisher, according to an official E3 list covering debut titles.

Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest is billed as "the first Lord of the Rings videogame created specifically for kids and their families." The title will feature an "accessible gameplay set in a friendly, colorful rendition of Middle-Earth."

Players will take on the role of hero Aragorn, fighting their way through various quests. Unsurprisingly, sword fighting, lancing and archery are involved.

No platform specifics or release details were included in the blurb. Shacknews has contacted Warner Bros. for more information on the game.

    So my interest in this lasted 10 seconds at most...

      Oh dear god. What they need to do to get out a good LOTR's game is to step away from the movies and do a game that has nothing to do with the movies and is a game on its own and most definately open world so players can try and move along with the story line or wander about on their own.

        I kinda liked the old Interplay Lord of the Rings titles even though they are old as dirt.
