WB Games Announces Partnership with NetEase for Upcoming Lord of the Rings Mobile Game

WB Games announces a partnership with Chinese company NetEase for the upcoming Lord of the Rings: Rise to War mobile game.

In a post on their Twitter account, WB Games announces a partnership between Chinese company NetEase for the upcoming mobile game The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War.

“We are pleased to announce our collaboration with NetEase, Inc. on the mobile game development of The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War,” says the tweet. “Set in the Third Age of Middle-earth, this latest mobile strategy game will feature iconic characters and locations from the original trilogy.”

The Lord of the Rings is one of the most influential and celebrated literary works in the world, and we are thrilled to be able to work with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment again to deliver another exciting game for global players,” says William Ding, founder and CEO of NetEase via a report from Collider. “With our deep mobile game development experience, world class R&D team and increasing success in the most established mobile game markets in the world, we are confident we can bring these vibrant characters and spirited world of Middle-earth to life, and impress global fans with an inspiring new way to enjoy The Lord of the Rings.”

In addition to the reveal of Lord of the Rings: Rise to War, it’s been teased that WB Games will have announcements to make at DC Comics’ DC FanDome event on August 22. The event will celebrate everything DC Comics related and include news on different comics, movies, TV shows, and video games. Here’s hoping we’ll finally get an announcement of the long-rumored Batman game from WB Montreal.

“With NetEase, we have an excellent partner for The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War, bringing gamers the mobile experience in this rich universe they are looking for,” says David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “This adaptation will unlock new opportunities for players to explore the iconic settings and characters of Middle-earth while utilizing their strategic skills in battle.”

While there’s no release date, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War will launch on mobile platforms in the future.
