EA announces The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth

EA has announced The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth, a free-to-play collectible R.P.G. on mobile.

EA has partnered with Middle-earth Enterprises, a division of The Saul Zaentz Company, for the game. It will feature turn-based combat and a roster of characters from, of course, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

In a statement to the press, Malachi Boyle, Vice President of Mobile RPG for Electronic Arts, said:

“We are incredibly excited to partner with The Saul Zaentz Company and Middle-earth Enterprises on the next generation of mobile role-playing games.”

Boyle then went on to say that “The combination of high-fidelity graphics, cinematic animations, and stylized art immerses players in the fantasy of Middle-earth.”

EA hasn’t revealed a release date for The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth. But the game will apparently enter limited regional beta testing this summer.

In other Tolkien-related news, publisher Nacon recently acquired Daedalic Entertainment, the studio behind The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. That game is on its way to consoles and PC, currently scheduled for release later this year. As its title suggests, it puts players in the shoes—or at least grimy feet—of Gollum.
