Every year players cry out for another edition to The Lord of The Rings catalog of games. There are plenty to choose from, but the franchise leaves itself very open to adaptation and gameplay. Shadow of Mordor and Return of The King had me burying hundreds of hours into defeating my enemies and becoming all-powerful.

With Orange Counties’ latest announcement, the next edition to the Mountains of inspired games looks to bring Middle Earth online. The huge open world that is promised by an MMORPG will provide countless quests, battles, and exploration. They should supply more than enough for anyone looking to get their teeth into a Lord of The Rings MMORPG. Orange Counties’ expertise in massive open-world battles will surely translate to some pretty serious gameplay when it finally releases.

With the Return of The King back in 2003, we were finally able to play multiplayer battles through the scenes we all loved the most from The Lord of The Rings. The return of multiplier to the franchise will be a huge selling point for anyone wanting to role-play Middle Earth. It will give the opportunity to explore the world with friends and foes alike.

The team promised to keep the game as close to the literary lore as possible. Orange County wants to give players an experience that shows the passion the team has for the IP. Faithfulness to the original work is always an important aspect to consider when tackling something as well-loved as Tolkien’s work.
