Official description

Based on New Line Cinema's upcoming film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy novel, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King video game puts the fate of Middle-earth in the hands of the gamer. In the final installment of the blockbuster movie trilogy, players must destroy the One Ring by casting it into the Crack of Doom, freeing Middle-earth from the clutches of the Dark Lord Sauron. EA's second Lord of the Rings action adventure game, The Return of the King, allows players to journey through multiple gameplay paths, taking control of the motion picture trilogy's heroes. Defend the walls of Minas Tirith as Gandalf, raise the Army of the Dead as Aragorn, Legolas or Gimli, and with Frodo and Sam, deliver the ring to the fiery depths of Mount Doom. Based on the environments from the upcoming movie, The Return of the King's third person gameplay will include immersive action and adventure elements set in rich, interactive levels. An all-new multiplayer co-op mode will let players form their own Fellowship before embarking on their journey through Middle-earth. Features:
* Over 12 interactive environments authentically reproduced from the films
* Battle vicious boss monsters including Shelob, the Witch King and the final showdown with the Dark Lord Sauron
* For 1 to 2 players
* 8 playable and secret characters with exclusive voice-overs provided by the actors from the films
* All-new co-op multiplayer mode will allow players to team up with a companion
