THE LORD OF THE RINGS: WAR IN THE NORTH is a new video game for multiple platforms which, as we’ve excitedly mentioned before, covers the war in the north between the various races of Middle Earth. They’ll be marking a major presence Comic-Con with a big event Saturday night in the Gaslamp district.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and the upcoming 2011 videogame The Lord of the Rings: War in the North invites the general public to a special event at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 23, during Comic-Con 2011 week. In the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp District, at 5th Avenue and J Street, fans can experience Middle-earth like never before with a special surprise spectacle, and play the new The Lord of the Rings: War in the North video game months before its official release. Beginning on Wednesday, July 20, fans can text WITN to 82257 or log on to www.warinthenorth.com/comic-con for more details about this not-to-be missed event. To help promote the event, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment joined with other Warner Bros. divisions in sponsoring the hotel key cards at 36 hotels in the San Diego area during the ‘Con.
The key cards include info on how to register for updates and the spectacle. If it doesn’t involves Nazgul swooping in on great carrion birds we’ll be very disappointed.
