The Lord of the Rings: Conquest Is Announced

Well, it looks like the Pandemic is setting its eyes on another classic series. With their success with the massive battle-fest that was Star Wars Battlefront, they have decided to create a spiritual successor to the superb Battlefront series. That game is The Lord of the Rings: Conquest. IGN has kindly detailed the game, which will feature the epic battles depicted in the movies and will have players fighting Balorgs, Sauron, and the like. So what's the co-op appeal?

Up to 16 players will be able to clash online, with four players able to play cooperatively through the main campaign either online or via four-player split-screen.

Yup, you and three buddies can fight Middle Earth's most epic battles, including some "what if" scenarios, like if Sauron had regained the One Ring. Nice. The game will come out on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Suit up, folks, because Middle Earth is at war!
