Lord of the Rings: War in the North has enough swords, axes, staves, and mallets to clog Mount Doom. If you're curious about some of the specifics, however, you've come to the right place.

A new dev diary from Snowblind Studios focuses on some of the dull/pointy-ended things your party of three will be using during their mission to stop Sauron's army in the Northern parts of Middle-earth. Also, there are skits!

The War in the North is the first game that pools the resources of the Tolkien estate and films, telling an entirely new story. Up to three players can team up to take on the forces of evil in the game, which is developed by the studio behind games including Champions of Norrath and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance.
