Publisher Warner Bros Interactive has appeased lore-hungry fans with some main character information and Belgian gaming site 9lives.be has gotten its hands on a boss battle trailer for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, the Snowblind Studios co-op action RPG coming November 1st.
The Human and Dwarven characters - Eradan and Farin, respectively - are Rangers of the North, and are privvy to the details of their mission. The Elven, Andriel, has close ties to canonical figures Gandalf, Elrond, and Aragorn. She will learn the secret of what the Rangers are protecting during the course of the game.
Eurogamer has some more background information on these three playable characters. But if you're like me and you just want to see some gameplay action, check out the video below.
