The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is a survival game in Tolkien's world



A sigh went through the gaming world when EA announced The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth last month, mainly because it was a mobile game. But more come from Tolkien's world, and whether it's good or bad that it's survival games we leave unsaid.

The game is called The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria , and just as the name suggests, it revolves around a return to the dwarf kingdom of Moria, or Khazad-dûm if you want to be extra intrusive in your nerdiness. Once there, it will be dug, collected, mead drunk and built.

During the course of the action, we will discover ancient landmarks, find veins of mithril and put our hands on one or another weapon - possibly one that glows blue when orcs are close. Dangers lurk in the dark, of course, and if you let too much (so if you are a little Tookig ) they can be awakened. Fortunately, you can not only play alone, but with up to seven other players if you want.

The development is provided by Free Range Games, which has helped to develop games such as Oddworld: Soulstorm and the upcoming The Callisto Procotol , and has developed Spelldrifter . The game is expected to be released in the spring of 2023 for PC.
