We couldn't be much more excited about today's release of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment if we tried. As the first M-rated video game bearing The Lord of the Rings name, this game promises lots of blood-soaked mayhem. Don't believe us? Check out the new video vignette that dropped today focusing on a simple – though key – element of this title: slaying Orcs!
We're just a few days away from the November 1st release of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment so today they've unveiled the game's launch trailer.

Here to kick off the weekend in style are a pair of new 360-degree screenshots from The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, giving unhindered views of the new regions of Middle-earth awaiting exploration. These interactive screenshots give expansive views of the game, offering full perspective on the unexplored lands and threats of the North.

We know The Lord of Rings isn't technically pure horror, but it does have some pretty awesome creatures in it so we figured our readers in San Diego for Comic-Con would want to hear about "The Lord of the Rings: War in the North Middle-earth Experience" taking place on Saturday, July 23rd.

Comedy Central's "Ugly Americans" will be represented at San Diego Comic-Con via a panel to be held on Friday, July 22, in Room 23ABC.

Remember a few years ago a film adaptation of the video game Doom lit up the big screen? Yeah, not many people do. In fact, some fans of the game are still trying to forget it. In any event the second time could be the charm.
