We've gone hands-on a couple different times with Snowblind's upcoming War in the North. Opinions are mixed and excitement levels are varied amongst the Co-optimus staff and community, but one thing's quite clear: this is a game that a huge amount of people have their eyes on. We showed you guys a trailer at the beginning of the month devoted to Beleram, a recently announced NPC (non-player character) who will be eating some orc faces by your side in the game. Today, a new trailer was released that revealed more NPCs who you'll meet and fight along side of in the game. The wizard Radagast the Brown and Elrond's sons Elladan and Elrohir will be joining the fight in the north as well as Elrond and Gandalf, of course.
War in the North releases August 24th on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC with local, online, and mixed local/online 3-player co-op.
