Warner Bros Interactive announced today that the upcoming action-oriented RPG based on The Lord of the Rings will be arriving for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this November.

Designed by Snowblind Studios, a development team who is no stranger to the RPG genre, with games like Baldur’s Gate and Champions of Norrath under their belt, War in the North is a gritty take on the Tolkien classic. The upcoming third-person action game will be gearing up for a retail release on your favorite home console beginning November 1st later this year.

The game sports a unique three-player cooperative mode so you and two of your friends can join up together and fight the forces of evil online, using an Elf, a Dwarf and a human. If you happen to be the Northwestern neck-of-the-woods of Germany sometime this month you might be able to check the game out at the GamesCom convention, where Warner Bros will be showing it off along with a few other titles.

You can learn more about The Lord of the Rings: War in the North by heading on over to the Official Website. And remember, it’s due out the first day of November, so mark your calendars.
