LEGO The Lord of the Rings comes out next week, has a launch trailer


What’s been the best Lord of the Rings game released in the last half decade? Because it might wind up being this, the newest spoof/homage from dependable LEGO types Traveller’s Tales (who are still getting better at this, you know). Watch Peter Jackson’s finest recreated shot-for-shot in the launch trailer – though you’ll be delighted to hear that all of the sharp edges have been sanded off and replaced with slapstick punchlines.

Traveller’s Tales’ adventures have all been of the open-world kind lately, and LOTR is no different.

PC is one of the seven(!) platforms LEGO The Lord of the Rings will launch on next Friday, so that’s lucky. And it has a demo! Tempted?
