EA Has Revealed a New LORD OF THE RINGS: HEROES OF MIDDLE-EARTH Free Mobile Game
Electronic Arts have partnered with Middle-earth Enterprises and jointly they are creating a new Lord of the Rings video game The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth. This is a free-to-play mobile game that’s defined as a “Collectible Role-Playing Game.” It’s boosted the storylines, locations, and characters in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of Rings and The Hobbit novels.
It’s described that the game will feature a “wide roster of characters from across Tolkien’s works. In the RPG title, players will engage in battle and take up the fight against the great evils of Middle-earth. EA promises high-fidelity graphics, cinematic animations, and stylized art as well as immersive storytelling, turn-based combat, and deep collection systems.”
The game is being developed by Capital Games, and Malachi Boyle, Vice President of Mobile RPG for EA said:
“We are incredibly excited to partner with The Saul Zaentz Company and Middle-earth Enterprises on the next generation of mobile role-playing games. The team is filled with fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and each day they bring their tremendous passion and talents together to deliver an authentic experience for players. The combination of high-fidelity graphics, cinematic animations, and stylized art immerses players in the fantasy of Middle-earth where they’ll go head-to-head with their favorite characters.”
Fredrica Drotos, Chief Brand and Licensing Officer for SZC’s Middle-earth Enterprises, added:
“We are thrilled to be working with EA once again, this time to bring a mobile game solely inspired by Middle-earth as described in the literary works of J.R.R. Tolkien to its fans. It’s an honor to work with the talented Capital Games team whose knowledge and love of the lore is palpable throughout.”
