In anticipation of next week’s launch, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has treated us to a new video for The Lord of the Rings: The War in the North. What makes this video so special, however, is that several famous faces speak up to provide commentary and background for the game.
Dominic Monahan and Sean Astin of The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy fame discuss what it’s like to explore Middle-Earth and the world’s presence in their childhoods. Actors Brian Posehm (The Sarah Silverman Show) and Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) provide insight into just how dominant Tolkien’s stories are within the fantasy genre. G4’s gaming experts Alison Haislip and Miri Jedeikin alongside Tolkien scholar Corey Olson affirm the intimacy of The War in the North to both the game world and that of the original novels.
The Lord of the Rings: The War in the North will be available on Window PC systems, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 next Wednesday, November 2. The video can be viewed after the cut.
