Electronic Arts has officially soft-launched The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth in the Philippines, letting players from the region participate in a playtest for the mobile strategy RPG. Players can expect to experience the popular fantasy franchise in this new title developed by Capital Games, which includes classic characters across different factions.
In The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth, players can look forward to immersing themselves in the Tolkien universe when a new Ring is discovered. The turn-based combat will feature iconic characters as players go through new narratives in the game. The new Ring will pose a great conundrum for players as they ultimately decide how they would like to wield their newfound power – will it be for good or for evil?
The game will also feature never-before-seen factions of Middle-earth. Players can put their skills and their own fellowship to the test in the game’s PvP, Story and PvE modes, as well as strategise team-up attacks to achieve synergy bonuses. They can also join guilds and go head-to-head with other fellowships to see who will reign supreme.
As the game continues to improve and gather feedback from players, it’ll soon roll out across additional regions and markets in the next few months. While there’s no official word on the exact release date just yet, you can stay tuned for any info on the official website of The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth. You can also have a look at the game on the Google Play Store for Android devices, or join the community of followers on Facebook.
