The One Ring has resurfaced in the deserted castle of Dol Guldur, and bestows unrivaled power to dominate Middle-earth on its bearer – luring peoples from all factions into a great war.
Gameplay-wise, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War takes an innovative approach to Tolkien’s fantasy epic. It’s a straight-up tile-based strategy game rather than the more typical RPG. NetEase Games describes it as a “geo-strategic seasonal wargame”.
The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War has been in development for a long time, and it shows. The game is absolutely stunning, as you’d expect from the studio behind EVE Echoes, Diablo Immortal, and countless other mobile blockbusters.
Your goal is to build a settlement, raise an army, and expand across the sprawling landscape of Middle-earth one tile at a time.
Set in the Third Age of Middle-earth, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War lets you write your own epic stories in the War of the Ring.
That’s the starting point for The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War, NetEase Game’s highly anticipated contribution to the Lord of the Rings canon.
Here are five reasons you need to play The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War – even if you’re not a Lord of the Rings fan.
