Lord Of The Rings Mobile - Gameplay

LOTR: Heroes of Middle-Earth is set to be a free-to-play strategy RPG. The mobile game is described to feature immersive storytelling that will take a deep dive into current and new Middle-Earth lore. Additionally, it will feature turn-based combat and collection systems that will provide players with a rich gaming experience in either the story or PvP mode.

But what gaming experience is complete without the characters? To answer that question, EA plans on creating a wide roster of characters that will include some of your favorites from both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit such as Aragorn, Gandalf, Arwen, and Sauron. On top of that, there will be an expansion of the races and factions such as the Haradrim.

Teams can be designed and molded around certain combat skills and character abilities. Character relationships will also be a feature in the game. Improving this will unlock special team-ups and synergy bonuses between allies. You can also downgrade certain relationships to deepen rivalries.

Information about the storyline is currently scarce. But as far as we know from the announcement trailer, there appears to be a new ring in Middle-Earth. Its origin and abilities are completely different from the One Ring that we're all familiar with. That being said, the new ring will grant players the ability to bring the best characters to battle. There will be a bigger meaning to the ring as players dive into the story.
