First of all, Snowblind Studios' Lord of the Rings: War in the North finally has a new release window. After a few delays, the game is getting ready to ship for a fall release. Great!

With a release window set, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced a Collector's Edition which comes with: a Ranger of the North quiver case; an art book; an "inside" look at the game's music, including three songs from the War in the North soundtrack; and a Ranger of the North Avatar for Xbox 360 owners or an XMB theme pack for PlayStation owners. All that, plus the game, for $129.99.

Also announced were pre-order incentives, unique to one of six retailers. I know you love those. Details below.
