A rousing new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North urges you to choose a champion and find out what happened on the parts of Middle-earth not being scurried over by hobbits.

Set during the events of The Lord of the Rings, War in the North tells the story of three champions from conflicts only touched on in both the books and films.

The game boasts two and three-player online co-op, a speciality of developer Snowblind Studios, and even allows for split-screen if you want one of your buddies to fight over the popcorn with. It’s due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early November, although the UK date is yet to be locked down.
