Warner Bros. making Lord of the Rings kids game

Thursday, 21st May 2009 08:07 GMT By Patrick Garratt


ESA’s inadvertently announced a Warner Bros. Lord of the Rings kids game called The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest.

Said the E3-organiser yesterday:

“The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest is the first Lord of the Rings videogame created specifically for kids and their families with accessible gameplay set in a friendly, colorful rendition of Middle-Earth. Players assume the role of Strider and embark on his greatest quests from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The game offers authentic, action-oriented sword fighting, lancing and archery that all ages can play together.”

It’s on show at E3. Thanks, IGN.

    A ‘friendly/colourful’ rendition of Mordor should be interesting. Shame it’s not a musical. ;)

    Saw this last night and was so dumbfounded by it I couldn’t bring myself to post it. LotR is gonna end up like Star Wars.

    Makes this Tolkien nerd want to cry a bit.

    Disney’s Lord of the Rings TV Special. It will happen.

    Considering Warner Bros. have done well from the Lego games, it’s not surprising that they’d like to expand that approach to other studios.

    It will be interesting to see how they make it kid-friendly without Lego though, whether we’re talking about Twilight Princess style bloodless fantasy, or full-blown cartoon Wind Waker visuals.

    Lord of the Rings Lego would be pretty damn cool actually. Getting to bash Lego Orcs, Wargs and Golblins into bits would be fun. Just think, you could switch into Gollum and go running through Goblin Town assaulting wayward miscreants in the dark. Now THAT would be fun.
