New game to the Lord of the Rings: EA leaves fans back in the rain

Friends of the Lord of the Rings have been waiting for a decent fantasy game for a while. Now Electronic Arts reports to want to save the battle for Middle-earth... with a mobile game. The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth is said to be the fortune adventure, but the enthusiasm is-not surprisingly-within limits.

EA works on the Lord of the Rings for Mobile

Since 2009, EA has no longer launched the Lord of the Rings, which was not least due to completely confused license difficulties. Now you have found a way to Middle-earth again, because together with Middle-Earth Enterprises, which keeps the rights to Tolkien's works of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit and markets and markets it, EA is working on a round-based mobile game called Heroes of Middle-Earth .

But it should not stay with a game, but a "generation of mobile role-playing games". In the announcement, a little more is revealed about the game:

"The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth offers a captivating story, round-based fights, extensive collecting systems and a large selection of characters from the huge universe of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. The players fight through iconic stories from the world of Tolkien and take up the fight against the great evils of Middle -earth. ”(Source: EA)

EA announces a new role-playing The Lord of the Rings game

But do not expect any influences from the successful films, because it is a game that is “exclusively inspired by Middle -earth, as it is in the literary works by J.R.R. Tolkien is described ”.

will there ever be good the-Herr der Ring games again?

In fact, EA produced a few really good game for the series in the 2000s, like the games based on the films Der Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Königs and The two towers; But also Der Lord of the Rings: The third age, which expands the films with its history. Enjoy a high reputation but especially The battle for Middle -earth 1 and 2. (Source: EA / Reddit)

However, the story around is a pure chaos . Warner Bros. has had the license for the games since 2009, and film rights are in turn at New Line Cinema. Now Electronic Arts can probably get back, but apparently they only use the literary work. Fans also expect a Gollum game from Daedalic Entertainment and Nacon. Does the head already smoke? NO?

Well, because a few months ago the message came, that the rights for film and game should be sold . That would cause a new mess - or maybe solve it? Amazon is considered a hot candidate, after all, the giant concentration is currently being created in the herr-Herr der Ringe series. (Source: Variety)

This confusion may be a reason why fans still have to wait for a remake or remaster of the classics. After all, a passionate player works on a fan remake of Der Lord of the Rings: The battle for Middle-earth 2-and that looks promising.

enthusiasm for new Middle-earth game? False

A comment from Sanel Rihic:

Electronic Arts is now really good at avoiding my interest. Because this new game announcement also left me cold. The game smithy, which has been mainly responsible for the stagnant FIFA series and the worn Battlefield games for years, could have started a new age "The Lord of the Rings" games with the new partnership with Middle-Earth Enterprises.

Instead, you rely on quickly produced Mobile games with loot boxes -Oh, I my Surprise Mechanics. Because a collective role-playing game, as Heroes of Middle-Earth is described, sounds more like a gacha system (a chic description for loot boxes).

The announcement met with little sympathy on Twitter. For example, a fan writes the following:

"Man, that just makes me sad, to know that another greed and incompetence is ruined. Perhaps one day we will get a golt game that fans earn. "

And it's true! Most recently, another mobile game appeared in the Middle-earth universe with the title Der Lord of the Rings: The battle begins by Warner Bros. Interactive, but this too could cause little enthusiasm. That is a shame, because Warner Bros. has, for example, with Mittelherde: Mordors Shadow and Schatten of the War actually build a successful game series and large fan base.

So the question remains open whether Warner Bros, EA or another company will-or will be able to bring out a decent Der-Herr-der Rings game at some point.
