After only a week from the official release, the game belonging to the popular franchise, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War, is now featured on Apple's App Store and Samsung's Galaxy Store. Since its launch, the game has gained massive popularity among The Lord of the Rings fans and strategy game fans alike, garnering close to a million downloads.
This stunning geo-strategic wargame is set in the famous world of Middle-earth and it lets each player create their own destiny. Starting with forging their very own ring, and aiming to obtain the One Ring, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War sees players expanding their kingdom, joining the Faction of their choice, and siding with other players in order to become the best.
The gameplay revolves around players picking strategically placed tiles and expanding their base in the direction they see fit. It's a unique approach to base builders that allows for so many possibilities and tactics, and that's exactly what makes this game so appealing. That, and the fact that there are famous characters from the books and movies (such as Gandalf the Grey and Aragorn), as well as geographically accurate depictions of famous Middle-earth locations.
