Another Dark Alliance?

In "Didn't we see this a month ago?" news, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North has officially been dated for a November 1st release.  The game was originally scheduled to release this month.  Hopefully the added time will allow for a little extra polish.  I like my games shiny.  In a recent interview with Eurogamer Snowblind Producer Ruth Tomandl made comparisons to Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance.  Let's hope the co-op experience is comparable to that classic.  The game will focus on a human, dwarf and elf who  weren't important enough to be in the original Fellowship of the Ring.  That's okay, there seems to be plenty of evil to go around.

LOTR: War in the North will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.  It supports two player local co-op and 3 player online co-op.
