Let Famous People Try to Sell You The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

A new promotional video for LotR: War in the North is packed full of 'famous' people

Unless you have featured in film or television I don't care about your opinion on Lord of the Rings.  Go home Professor of English Literature at Oxford University; see you Grandpa who actually knew Tolkien - neither of you have the kudos of some bloke off Big Bang Theory or one of the Hobbits from the films.  Snowblind Studios understand my needs with their new promotional video for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North.  Talk to us all famous people.

Although the below video is pure promotion, behind the waffle is some insight into the upcoming game.  Skip past the 3 minute mark or so of 'famous' people discussing how they became interested in Tolkien and you will come across some new footage of the game.  This 3 player online, 2 player offline, co-op game will follow a new group of characters whose adventure runs parallel to their more famous cousins. With such a rich world to play in, War in the North could potentially be one of the best story led co-op games yet.  

Who am I kidding - that's Sean Astin from California Man and Toy Soldiers!
