A few months ago, a new game set in the Lord of the Rings universe was announced. The latter, which invites us to return to the Mines of Moria, now has a release date.
The Lord of the Rings has not only marked the sphere of literature and cinema. Tolkien’s work has also been welcomed with open arms by video games. Recently, it’s not been a hit, as evidenced by the title that focuses on Gollum. Never mind, it will not prevent teams of developers from continuing to pay tribute to this wonderful universe.
An unforgettable Lord of the Rings location
Thus, earlier in the year, The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria was announced with great fanfare. This time, it is not a question of treading the lands of Mordor, but rather those of the Mines of Moria. A place well known to aficionados of this universe. Designed as a survival and crafting game, the goal will be to fight alongside Gimli Lockbearer to reclaim this place that belonged to the dwarves. As you descend into the mines, you will have to collect resources and build facilities in order to create a viable environment. But beware, threats reside within the walls and we will have to face them.
The good news of the day is that there is now a release date to eat. It will be possible to play Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria October 24 next, but only on PC and PS5 in digital version. For box game enthusiasts, don’t panic, a physical edition is planned for the Sony machine. But it will not arrive until December 5, 2023. There will be an Xbox Series version, however, you have to be patient, because it is only planned for the beginning of 2024.
The franchise has surprises in store
Currently, the exploitation rights of the work of JRR Tolkien are in the possession of Embracer Group. And they intend to make good use of it. Therefore, 5 games based on the license should land in the next few years. Among them, there is precisely Return to Moria. For its part, Amazon Games Orange County is preparing an MMO Lord of the Rings. As for Daedelic Entertainment, the brains behind the game Gollum, they have confirmed that another title based on this universe is in preparation. So it’s a great time for Lord of the Rings fans.
