The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King Details
Electronic Arts has announced that it will release The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King for the Playstation 2. Based on the movie of the same name, players will assume the role of Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Frodo, Sam and two to four hidden characters. Each character will have different moves, upgrades, weaponry, and statistics. An all-new multiplayer cooperative mode has also been revealed, as players once again travel through a vast number of environments.
Executive Producer Neil Young explains, "The Return of the King really follows three arcs through the story; that of Gandalf, that of Aragorn, Legolas & Gimli and lastly that of Frodo, Sam & Gollum. We allow the player to explore these arcs through the gameplay, following the paths of these characters through the story. There are certain gates that prevent the player from progressing that might break the fiction, but that motivates them to essentially bring a party of characters through the game to its conclusion."
