Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released the Official Fellowship Trailer, delving into the events and characters which chart the path of turmoil, depicted in the upcoming 2011 video game, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.

In the face of an ancient evil rising from the shadows, players will form the beginnings of a Fellowship vital to the continued defence of Middle-earth.

Bringing together both familiar and new characters, Snowblind Studios takes one-step further to expand The Lord of the Rings franchise to a new audience. As Sauron gathers power, the cruel master of dark sorceries Agandaur stands to crush all those that dare oppose him in the North.

Three bright flames of courage emerge to challenge him. To protect their people, their lands and all of Middle-earth, this Fellowship of three must unite and fight as one.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North weaves captivating action into a deep and emotional story, taking players on a journey to these unexplored regions of Middle-earth. Only those who do not seek glory, who do not seek power, those who fight to stem the onslaught in the face of darkness will prevail.
