Warner Bros has secured the rights to create and distribute games based on the Lord of the Rings films. The first of these is to be The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest, an action-adventure done with a 3rd person viewpoint. Warner's President, Martin Tremblay spoke:
"The Lord of the Rings franchise is world famous for its captivating adventures, we're creating new experiences in the game space designed to appeal to a wide range of consumers from core to casual. Aragorn's Quest is the first of several different types of games we'll be developing with the film and literary rights. It's also the first game allowing kids and their families to interact in their favorite locations and stories from The Lord of the Rings with accessible gameplay".
My new least favorite word: accessible. The game puts the player in the shoes/boots of Aragorn, as he progresses through a series of his most notorious battles from the trilogy. Combat weapons include swords, bows and spears. Aragorn travels the lands of Middle-earth on foot and on horseback at times.
You can expect The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest to hit shelves this Fall, available on Wii, DS and some other lesser systems (namely PS2 and PSP).
