It is an indisputable fact that one of the best video games that spawned from the Lord of the Rings franchise was The Third Age in all its turned-based glory, a gameplay style that has been brought over to the latest entry in the saga, The Lord of The Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth.

Developed by Electronic Arts Inc and Capital Games, fans of the series will be able to relive their favourite parts of the story alongside iconic heroes such as Frodo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey and take the fight to the dastardly Orcs, Goblins and Nazguls, all operating under the ever watchful eye of Sauron.

When you grow weary of the story, like that is possible, head to the Arena and prove you are the mightiest hero in Middle-earth. For those who prefer friends over fights, you could join or even find your own fellowship, and tackle the Guild Campaign together, because we all need our own Sam.

There is a huge host of characters to collect, train, and then place into your party as you engage with the strategic squad-based gameplay, with more characters being added as time goes on. As you can expect, you will need to roll the dice to expand your army through the gacha system.

When commenting on the launch, Capital Games’ Game Director, Nicolas Reinhart, said: “Our vision for The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth invites players to shape a brand new narrative around the powers of the new Ring of Power with endless possibilities,”

“We wanted to give players a space to explore one of the most diverse, inclusive and story-rich version of Middle-earth where they can assemble beloved heroes, shine a spotlight on characters referenced but never shown before in the literature, and even upgrade and modify their characters to elevate the way players interact with their squads.”

The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle Earth is available to download now from the App Store and Google Play.
