Electronic Arts continues their exclusive relationship with the cinematic versions of J.R.R. Tolkien's famous trilogy with the
release of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. In this combat game based on the third film by Peter Jackson, players will
fight legions of orcs and other creatures from a third-person perspective as heroes Aragorn, Gimli, or Legolas. Following the
same structure as its action-oriented predecessor, players will wield swords, axes, daggers, and bows to fight multiple enemies
simultaneously. Featured locales include Minas Tirith, Mount Doom, and more, with each environment offering multiple tiers or
planes to travel across. Now characters will be able to jump and climb, enabling them to interact with their surroundings to a
greater degree. Film composer Howard Shore's epic score punctuates the battles as the original cast provides the voice acting.
The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King also features a number of film clips used as segues to the game's action scenes.
From the Manufacturer: EA's second attempt at re-creating Tolkien goodness. Enhances the formula it cobbled together using a
little Devil May Cry, a little Streets of Rage, and a far more impressive amount of movie footage from all three of the Peter
Jackson films, Return of the King expands in every single way to make this year's effort undeniable.
Players get the chance to play as five characters (Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Sam and Frodo), plus three secret ones; the
environments are interactive with useable weapons, ropes to swing down, catapults to fire, and more. Plus, gamers can finally
get together with their buddies to play the game in co-op mode.

the Rings films. Traverse the Paths of the Dead, defend Minas Tirith, and battle Sauron's forces at the Pelennor Fields before the
