The Lord of the Rings is a timeless franchise, but it’s about to get a big break with Amazon’s highly anticipated show, The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power. But what about the gaming side?
At this time, we know of at least three games in development. Expect that number to multiply after the recent acquisition of Middle-earth Enterprises by the Swedish company Embracer Group. Middle-earth Enterprises owns the worldwide rights to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit film trilogies, and other properties tied to J.R.R. Tolkien. This deal also includes rights to video games, board games, merchandising, theme parks, and more.
Elrond and Gandalf duel over the greatest exhibition in Middle-earth. I’m torn on who wins, but there’s no doubt that Hugo Weaving does a great job playing this wise-cracking leprechaun. There is also no doubt that Elrond’s actions help the Fellowship win the War of the Ring, either by forming the Fellowship or by urging Aragorn to take up the Sword of Elendil.
One in-game purchase to rule them all
While Warner Bros. Games has been running the Lord of the Rings video game companies of late, Electronic Arts is no stranger to the franchise . EA published the PlayStation 2-era fighting games The Two Towers and Return of the King. Electronic Arts also published the role-playing game, The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age, and the Battle for Middle-earth RTS series.
However, in terms of mobile companies, this is something new. Heroes of Middle-earth is in development at Capital Games, the arm of EA that currently runs Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. While the ad advertises narration, cinematic animations, and high-fidelity graphics, concerns about monetization and content structure seem pretty valid as well.
S Tier List
The best characters in the game and considered the strongest in terms of their abilities. We recommend trying to get an S tier character as soon as possible.
Great characters and great replacements if you can’t get your hands on an S tier. They can be used alongside S tier characters and can easily help you clear content.
