The trio of heroes in the Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be facing hordes of enemies on their quest to support the Fellowship, and today you can get a peek at one particularly vile foe.

The Barrow-downs' cursed tombs hold the remains of long-forgotten Rangers. The Barrow-wight Lord has animated these unfortunate souls and commanded them to do his bidding. As you can see in this new video of the action-RPG, he's able to control the undead and even the living.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is available November 1, 2011, on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
