You’ll start the game by designing your ring, then engage in battle from the get-go. You’ll recruit your first Commander and begin your journey with your chosen Faction (Gondor, Rohan, Lothlórien, Erebor, Mordor, Isengard, Angmar, and Rhûn).

Every Season, players can fight to capture resource tiles for better and faster expansion, as well as Control Points that grant access to a whole region. Tiles can also contain harbors or tunnels for accessibility across the highly accurate map. Then, when the Season resets after two to three months, players can start fresh and get a second chance thanks to the fair rank rotation. Players will also be rewarded based on their contributions to their Faction.


Ready to claim the One Ring once and for all? The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is available to download on the App Store, the Galaxy Store, and on the Google Play Store today. It’s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
