The Lord of the Rings is not dead! New RPG to be unleashed on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360
EA's swept its cloak back and thrust its pelvis forward to slap us in the face with The Lord of the Rings: The White Council, a new Tolkien-tastic RPG that's weaving its magic on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. You may actually recall that this title was 'accidentally' revealed back in January, but now we have official word dressed up in shiny role-playing attire.
The White Council's due next year, and is described as an epic, open world adventure that's been inspired by Peter Jackson's Rings movies and features an original storyline "derived from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings novels". According to EA, as a dwarf, hobbit, elf or man, you'll be able to explore Middle-earth and ultimately become a hero allied to the White Council.
Furthermore, we're told "A combination of stunning graphics and expansive environments, along with the freedom of movement demonstrates the innovation and quality of the next-generation RPG, where players can create their own adventures." Erm, okay then.
Unfortunately, we've yet to be bombarded with first screenshots from The White Council, but it's only a matter of time.
