EA is working on a new free-to-play ‘Lord of the Rings’ mobile game in what comes as another great news for mobile gamers. While the news is undoubtedly exciting, let’s look at all the information that we know so far on the title.
While there have been some previous games in ‘The Lord of the Rings’ franchise since 2010, Warner Bros. owned the license to make a game based on The Lord of the Rings storyline. Meanwhile, EA held the license, and the company has made many titles based on ‘The Lord of the Rings franchise. However, the last game EA made on the middle earth franchise was ‘The Lord of the Rings: Conquest,’ which came out in 2009. As of now, EA is reportedly working to bring a Lord of the Rings mobile game.
