Arriving sometime this Autumn, TT Games is bringing humor and fun to Middle Earth in true LEGO fashion. Spanning the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, players will control 80+ characters on the way to Mount Doom to destroy the infamous ring. You’ll also jump in between storylines by using the Palantir (Seeing stone).
Like previous LEGO titles, characters can affect the game world with abilities inspired by their film (or comic) counterparts. Here we have a preview of the abilities for a few characters, including the Fellowship.
