If there's one thing that people always associate with Middle Earth, it has to be giant birds. What? You think of hobbits first? Long-bearded wizards spring to mind, do they? Maybe you first associate flaming, disembodied eyes with the world of the Lord of the Rings? Hmm.
Well, maybe birds are more important to Middle Earth than you thought. According to this latest batch of screenshots for the upcoming co-op title Lord of the Rings: War in the North, a huge eagle named Beleram is in the spotlight. So take your hairy footed midgets and pipe smoking mages somewhere else, because this is one bird who is VERY angry, VERY big, and VERY ready to kick some bad guy butt.
