LEGO The Lord of the Rings trailer released at Gamescom


A new trailer for upcoming LEGO Lord of the Rings has made its way onto the web after being shown at Gamescom 2012. The new game is being developed by TT Games, and features content, characters, scenes and epic battles from the three Lord of the Rings films/books.

Gamers are able  to experience the Lord of the Rings story through LEGO recreation via minifigures, as they “explore wonders, solve timeless riddles, and overcome endless foes in their quest to destroy the Ring.” The Lego adaptation of the DC and Batman universe in Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was pretty stellar, so here’s hoping the Lord of the Rings is done justice as well. From what has been shown of the game thus far, it looks to offer a similar experience to past Lego titles, with a touch of Tolkien of course.

The epic Lord of the Rings universe looks like it will offer a good setting for the game, offering giant monsters, varieties of weapons and spells, and unique characters. Not convinced?
