Sauron’s dark forces are marching and a small band of heroes is all that stands before them. Together, Eradan the Ranger, Andriel the Elf and Farin the Dwarf embark on an epic journey across frozen mountain ranges, ancient forests and mighty citadels to protect the North from his terrible power.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is the untold story of those heroes and the unbreakable Fellowship they formed. A compelling combination of visceral action and immersive role-playing that can be played in single-player mode or with friends in co-operative multiplayer mode over a local network connection.*

Key features:

• Take on the might of Sauron’s forces alone in single-player mode or invite friends to form a Fellowship in local network multiplayer mode.*

• Discover an untold story of the war in the North of Middle-earth, inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien’s renowned The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

• Engage in brutal combat with your blade, bow, axe or magic and summon Beleram, one of the Great Eagles of Middle-earth, to fight alongside you in battle.

• Develop the Fellowship’s unique skills, customize their appearance and upgrade their weapons, equipment and armor.

• Forge a new path through unexplored domains of Middle-earth as well as legendary locations such as Rivendell and the Misty Mountains.

*Multiplayer is only available on a local network and does not have an online element.

Great game!

Running on a 2012 iMac this game works great, runs smoothly and has a lot which can be done! Gameplay is smooth, no freezes or trouble spots so far and for those wondering if it supports a gamepad, just plug in an xbox controller and it works great!

Edit: The latest update should fix the lag issues which some on here have noticed, there was one particular chapter on my iMac which I found would lag if the camera was pointed in one direction, so I proceeded to email Feral and received a quick reply about the problem and asking for more information. Within a few days I found out that Feral was already working on a patch to fix the issue and would soon have an update to resolve the problem which I was experiencing. The customer service of Feral alone is worth a 5 star rating, most developers wouldn’t take the time to fix the problem so quickly but they did and it appears the problem has been resolved in this new update.

Great game, no issues

Running this game on my late 2012 Mac mini w/ 2.3GHz i7 Quad-core and 8GB of RAM. I’ve run the game with the graphics to the max and had absolutely no issues. If you’re running an Intel HD Graphics 4000, be sure you have at least 8GB of RAM, as it states in the “system requirements”. I’ve tried to run this on my mid 2012 MacBook Pro, which has 2.5GHz i5 Duo-core and 4GB of RAM, and it’s quite laggy. Anything less than the HD Graphics 4000 and I wouldn’t even attempt running this game.

Works great on Mac Mini 2011!

I can play on Max setting with very little gameplay lag, however the loading times are longer, especially the first. It said my Mac wasn’t offically supported, but it works great. If the gore is too much or you have younger kids who watch/want to play, there is a sensor gore option. Grab it while it’s on sale!
