Unlike many LEGO games of the past (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Batman and so on) LEGO The Lord of the Rings is using real voice acting.
With the movie trilogy as inspiration, and undoubtedly a line up real world LEGO products to follow, LEGO The Lord of the Rings takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the classic tale
Based on The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, LEGO The Lord of the Rings follows the original storylines of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, taking players through the epic story events reimagined with the humour and endless variety of LEGO play. Trusted with the dangerous task to destroy an ancient magical ring that threatens all that is good, Frodo is forced to leave his peaceful home. But the ring wants to be found and the road to Mount Doom, the only place where it can be destroyed, will be perilous and riddled with Orcs and fouler things.
LEGO The Lord of the Rings is scheduled to be available Q4 2012 for Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3, Wii™, Nintendo DS™, Nintendo 3DS™, PlayStation® Vita, and PC.
