Warner Bros. have announced today that The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will launch in the UK in November 2011 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game's Collector's Edition, featuring behind-the-scenes looks at the game development, a specially crafted art book, digital download content and more, will also launch in November.

No further details were released about the game, which developer Snowblind Studios says in the spiritual successor to Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance, features a unique 3-player co-op system as either a Human, Elf and Dwarf played by friends locally, online or computer controlled.

Intertwining the characters and storyline of the novel and films, the game takes place in parallel with the well-known Ring Bearer's quest, but in the equally harsh and contested lands to the North, as the battle for Middle-earth's survival rages.
