Lord of the Rings: War in the North trailer, screens invade

Co-op battles, giant birds and more

Warner has sent over a new trailer and a few screenshots for Snowblind Studios' co-operative role-playing game Lord of the Rings: War in the North.

Snowblind has described the title as "mature" and "brutal", with "innovative online, interdependent co-op play for up to three players who form their own Fellowship to fight Sauron's forces in the North".

The trailer features a mixture of gameplay footage, ranging from the usual sword-fighting to cruising around on giant eagles, as well as cinematics that lay out what's at stake in War in the North. Preview: it's the fate of Middle-Earth.

The screens (which you can see below) feature the fellowship taking on Sauron's forces, which include orcs, trolls and the aforementioned giant bird.
