Lord of the Rings: War in the North’s story detailed

As a fan of Snowblinds third-person action games, I’m psyched for next year’s Lord of the Rings: War in the North.

But I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of Lord of the Rings, so it’s the game’s gritty, cooperative third-person action that has me hooked. This latest trailer tells a bit of the game’s story, which sounds Lord of the Rings-y enough to me, I guess. But I’m serious, I don’t know too much about this stuff. If there were a robot came out from behind a bush and attacked the dwarf I’d be like “Yeah, that’s cool. Robots. Totally.”

So Lord of the Rings fans, how is this looking from a story standpoint?
