If you like the books and films of Lord of the Rings, then Rise to War will be a perfect game for you. Aside from the fact that the game takes place in the same period of time as the films and books, it also has some of the most beloved characters from the trilogy, such as Gandalf, Aragorn, and Elrond, among others.
While on the hunt for the elusive Ring, you’ll have to construct armies and extend territorial boundaries. You have the option of choosing to be good or bad by allying with Fellowships or Warbands. The map’s concept is based on “grills”, which are battles in which you engage in order to extend your territory. Every victory brings you one step closer to your goal, but every defeat brings back.
In some places, Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is already available to play and you can see some gameplay from the game in the video above.
