We hype up the fact that The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is available on major consoles and the PC — game went on sale Tuesday, folks — but we often forget that OnLive, the streaming game service started by the guys who say “Why bother with dedicated hardware?” also has the game for its customers. That’s right, if you’ve got an OnLive subscription, broadband Internet connection and a screen to play it on, whether it be HDTV, PC or Mac, you can jump into Middle-Earth.
Not only that, but UK members of the service get a playable demo through Nov. 25, which is when the game is released in that region. So if you’ve got an OnLive subscription, jump in and beat up some Orcs. Why? Because you damn-well can.
Check out our own Alexa Ray Corriea’s post on the game’s latest trailer for more of the skinny on this latest title inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s work.
