Lord of the Rings War in the north

A new video has appeared for Lord of the Rings: War in the North, the upcoming co-op hack and slash adventure from Snowblind. A new developer diary has been released, showing off some of the new locations from Tolkien's writing that went unexplored in the films, including the huge steel sanctuary of Carn Dum, home of the Witch King.

The game promises a violent take on Tolkien's universe. There's a levelling and skill system to add extra interest to the ork-battering, and a firm focus on co-op. The game's due out later this year. For more information, head over to the Lord of the Rings: War in the North site.
