New “Lord of the Rings” game from Bothell’s Snowblind

One of the higher profile games out of the Seattle area next year may be “Lord of the Rings: War in the North,” which Bothell’s Snowblind Studios is making for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

The 2011 release was announced today by Snowblind’s parent company, Warner Brothers, and will be on the cover of PlayStation Magazine’s May edition.

Warner is calling it a “mature,” epic, multiplayer action-role playing game based on the novels by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“In ‘The Lord of the Rings: War in the North,’ Snowblind will deliver an action RPG for core gamers featuring authentic narrative and environmental locations from J.R.R. Tolkien’s original ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ ” Snowblind founder and studio head Ryan Geithman said in the release. “This game is a natural evolution of the acclaimed RPG gameplay that Snowblind has consistently delivered over the past years. Players and fans will experience an innovative approach to online co-op gameplay, woven throughout every facet of the game in a way that only Snowblind can deliver.”
