Losing The Battle, Losing The War
on November 01, 2011 at 11:14 AM
Five years ago, I would have counted Snowblind Studios among my favorite RPG developers. Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath demonstrated that Snowblind knew how to combine action, character progression, and loot into an irresistible formula. I still look back at those titles...

on September 30, 2011 at 09:54 AM
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North has an emphasis on co-operative play, and there are some good reasons why. Not only does it provide a chance to highlight three of Middle-earth's dominant races, but it also happens to be great fun. At least, that's what developer Snowblind Studios says...
We Put The Loremaster Through Her Paces
on August 18, 2011 at 12:56 PM
I’ve had the opportunity to play Lord of the Rings: War in the North before, but until today I’d gravitated toward playing as Farin the dwarf. Demos are usually short affairs, and melee characters are relatively easy to figure out in such a brief period. Today, however, I decided to see how...
You're Not Alone In The War
on June 16, 2011 at 09:20 AM
It seems a bit unfair that a group of three was expected to hold off a large portion of Sauron's armies the north, so it's great that Snowblind Studios is talking about reinforcements. A new developer diary talks about some of the forces that will be traveling with your group during the Lord...

on May 12, 2011 at 11:05 AM
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...

Lord Of The Rings Team Talks Blood And Steel
on March 31, 2011 at 09:28 AM
The upcoming action RPG Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a departure from past games based on the franchise in a few significant ways. First, it's based on an all-new story, told with the approval and cooperation of the Tolkien estate. Next, it fuses elements from both the books and Peter Jackson's...
