Not much is known yet about the new game in development, but one thing that is for certain it will be released for mobile-only and it will be free to play, with the title of the game being confirmed as The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth.
EA have developed many Lord of the Rings games in the past, with some of the popular titles including The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age and the earliest of the games – The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers.
So what do we know about the new title so far? Scroll down below to see the first bits of information on EA’s new Lord of the Rings game.
What We Know So Far
The publisher has been secretive about details on the title so far and hasn’t released any images or gameplay beyond this one piece of art.
EA are combining with Middle-Earth enterprises as the image shows and will be solely based on J.R.R Tolkien’s depiction of ‘Middle-Earth’ in his literary works.
The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle Earth has been described as an RPG, which will feature immersive storytelling, turn-based combat, deep collection systems, and a wide roster of characters from both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
As mentioned previously, the title will only be available for mobile players and will be completely free to play. EA have not given a specific time frame or official date of release.
EA are also working on an eagerly anticipated Lord of the Rings title in ‘The Lord of the Rings: Gollum’ which was announced as an upcoming title at the 2021 Game Awards and is hopefully looking to be released before the end of 2022.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox One, so it looks like we will be getting a next-gen LOTR title very soon alongside this mobile one.
