Rest easy, nerds: Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest isn’t the last LOTR title. The trademark crawler over at SuperAnnuation spotted a new registration by the Saul Zaentz Company (the people who trademarked Warner Bros. Aragorn’s Quest) for the unannounced The Lord of the Rings: War of the North. Sounds serious.
We won’t be coy: we know absolutely nothing about this title. If LOTR game tradition holds, chances are this will be another boring brawler featuring Orcs, an overpowered Legolas and Gimli as mere comic relief. Then again, as suggested by Joystiq, this could be another one of those silly “family friendly” titles.
So, what’s in the North? This map has all sorts of funny locations, but our eyes were drawn to The Lonely Mountain — home of the Durin and the largest stockpile of treasure in all of Middle-Earth. Treasure is worth fighting a war over.
