Om dette spillet

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a co-op Action RPG that immerses you and your friends in a brutal new chapter in the War of the Ring. Snowblind Studios is in the unique position of drawing inspiration from both the literary and film rights to world of Middle-earth, allowing players to bloody their axes on a wide range of deadly enemies and traverse both established and never-before-seen locations. The result is a journey that is both epic and intimate, familiar yet unexpected.

Key Features:

  • Action Meets RPG - Intense, visceral, and satisfying combat. Rich, layered, and impactful character progression. In War in the North, you get both. Find and equip the best loot, upgrade your hero using a wide range of skills and items, and feel the intense satisfaction of rushing into real-time battles with friends by your side. Fight through the brutal realities of the war on all fronts that were brought to life in the lore. Immerse yourself and make your own mark on Middle-earth.
  • Co-op at its Core - Build your own fellowship of three heroes to confront the growing army in the North. The survival of your group and all of Middle-earth depends upon your uniquely skilled heroes working together. You must fight together or you will die alone, and these high stakes make the experience of playing together both socially engaging and incredibly satisfying. The first time you rescue a friend who has been grabbed by a troll and is desperately yelling for help, you will understand what we mean.
  • An Untold Story - While much attention and focus has been placed on the journey of the One Ring, the assault on Middle-earth hits all corners of the map. War in the North turns our attention towards an integral part of the storyline that is grounded in details within the books and various appendices. This is not someone else’s fight. This is your own effort to forage a way through the dark, dangerous, and unknown landscape, defending all that is yours. This is your war.

Fantastic hack & slash game with great graphics (for 2011 of course), good storyline and highly advanced co-op play. Just play with friends, and you get a lot of fun.

Game crashes over and over again after several hours of gamplay. It is a known bug with ATI video cards and will never be fixed. Buyer beware.

It's a good game for fans os The Lord of the Rings. With it you can travel to some places you've always wanted to. It does have some issues while playing by yourself (the companions AI is weak) but with friends it's really cool. So, if you want to know something more about the The Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit and kill some orcs that's the game for you!

Just started playing throught this with two friends, it's ♥♥♥♥ing awesome.

1. You each have a different role and different gear associated with it
- Champion: Straight up heavy DPS, uses big two handed axes and maces, he can also use 2 handed swords with one hand.
- Ranger: Agile DPS, can dual wield swords/maces/hammers and can use greatswords.
- Lore-Master: Healing and procective magic, she can also use her staff as a melee weapon when needed.

2. ♥♥♥♥ING LOOT IS AWESOME. Each of you get your own seperate loot that covers all 3 classes, so you'll need to take breaks every now and then to give eachother the items for their class and vice versa.

3. Combat is kinda like Dragon Age on a console. You know, the hack and slashy ♥♥♥♥. But it's extremely satisfying for all classes.

The overall feel for the game is kinda like an MMO and Borderlands mixed together, it's really well made and is up to standards even 3 (nearly 4) years later.

If you've got an odd number of friends that you regularly play games with (like myself), I would definitely recommend this to you!

War in the North is a great hack'n slash RPG. The gameplay gets a bit repetitive and grindy, but the story (set in the LOTR universe) is fun and believable. Amazing performance for its graphics. Overall pretty good, can get insanely difficult at times though.

If your are playing this as a single player it might work, however if you are interested in playing this with a friend or two, abandon ♥♥♥♥. Theres plenty of working co-op games out there and this is not one of them.

Here is some of the problems you will face if you try to play this game in co-op:

The game features its own voice chat function which works so poorly that you will not be able to understand a single word because of the bad sound quality. THERE IS ALSO NO WAY TO DISABLE IT. I had to download a virtual adio cable program just so I could actually chat with a friend using another program while playing.

If you were lucky enough to get into another players game, buckle up for strange crashes, disconnects when visiting windows and a good spike in your blood pressure every time you try to give an item to your friend. It will most likely vanish into thin air.

Getting used to the menus will take longer than I ever put into this game since they are made for a controller. There is mouse support but much of it is just nonsense.

I will have to say that the game supports alt + f4 so escaping its horrors is quick and easy.

If you enjoy the LOTR story, you will enjoy this game. I have yet to complete it, but I hear it is short. I will update my review once I complete the game.

While this game eyes great, it does have a lot of potential. However, various things deny that potential. 5 second knockdowns, your companions blocking your way, no flinching upon being hit resulting in just dropping dead, litte logic within the story line and to much a linear way to play.

Also, having to choose a single class and the game forcing you to play that class till the end of the game, since all the fancy equipment you gave to your AI companions will be gone when you select them. Making sure that once you change, you've got no way to match the equipment to that level, unless you buy yourself the equipment, which is only possible after you've reached Rivendell.

All in all, if the devs payed some more time upon developing the game, it would've been recommendable and enjoyable. Now it's just a frustrating experience I must add. So, if you're looking for a decent Lord of the Rings slasher, I'd suggest playing the games made 10 years ago, or the somewhat newer Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor.

Wow... just wow
It could be a great game, but why it have to be so an instable one. Sometimes it frozen so much that even the task manager couldn't kill it, had to restart.
And the fancy idea of forcing the low quality mic during the game. Because why not the cavern scenes have echoing effect? Who would like if you cannot understand a dman thing what the others said.

This would be a great game, if it didn't crash all the time using an AMD card. This game should be pulled from the steam store.

I like the LOTR franchise, but the games seem to be hit or miss. This RPG is the latter. The game menu is unintuitive and having to exit out of inventory everytime you search an enemy is a chore. Voice acting is alright, but better for some characters than others. The story is forgettable and you don't really form any kind of emotional attachment to the characters. Enemies are what you'd expect, except there are a lot more trolls. Good lord how I hated the trolls. Also, there is a boss about halfway through that may have been bugged for me (or not) that took a good 5-10 minute of hacking at his legs to bring down. I also expected that there would be more areas of the game to explore, as there are more locations on the map than you actually visit. Apparently they are there to explain lore, but that should have been explicitly stated. Pass on this title.
