Thanks to our friends at North Beach Games and Free Range Games, we will be taking a deep dive into the Misty Mountains together by this time next year. We hope you will be there Will be!” Fredrica Drottos of Middle-earth said enthusiastically.
The story of The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria takes players beyond the books into the Fourth Age of Middle-earth, the fictional world created by JRR Tolkien. Summoned to the Misty Mountains by Lord Gimli Lockbearer, players take control of a band of dwarves who are tasked with retrieving lost loot from Moria’s dwarf homeland – known as Khazad-Dom, or Dwarodelph. Known – in the depths under your feet. Finding treasure in the mines of Moria will take a lot of courage. Players will band together to survive, craft, build and explore the coveted giant mines. Members of the daring expedition must be vigilant, as mysterious dangers lurk.
“At Free Range Games we are absolutely thrilled to finally release The Lord of the Rings Revealed: Return to Moria,” said Chris Scholz, CEO of Free Range Games. “We care deeply about JRR Tolkien and all of his creations in Middle-earth, and this project is a great opportunity to create new experiences that emerge from one of the greatest stories of all time. Put a lot of passion into the game to deliver an unforgettable experience.”
The game offers endless experiences through a procedurally generated dwarf kingdom of Moria, so no two adventures are alike, and each campaign can be completed alone or with an online companion. Players can mine to craft better gear and resources, but beware, mining makes noise, and the noise made in the silent depths threatens to awaken the dangers below: Where there is thunder, there is battle. . Explore the secrets of the Three Great Mountains, mine precious metals, battle for survival and fight unspeakable forces to unravel the mystery of the shadows hidden within.
Feel the Fellowship: Experience the Fellowship of the Dwarves like never before, with the rich story of JRR Tolkien’s iconic fantasy world woven into the fabric of The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria.
Survive the Dark: To survive in Moria’s treacherous mines, players must conserve resources, hunt and gather food, and control their sleep, temperature, and noise levels. Use dynamic lighting to protect yourself and ignite a trail in the dark. Fight unspeakable evils and survive hordes of monstrous orcs as you uncover the mystery of the shadow hidden within the mountain.
Base Build: Find solace in the dark. Discover and clear new places to build massive architecture. Be creative and build from the beginning or build on top of an existing environment. Beware of the evils that seek to destroy the progress of the dwarves.
The game is currently in development, with more news and announcements to come in the coming months. For more information about The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria, visit ReturnTomoria.com, the Discord community, and Twitter, Tik Tok, and YouTube.
