Lord Of The Rings: Heroes Of Middle-earth Launches In May

After its initial reveal last summer and a brief look at gameplay in September, EA and Capital Games’ turn-based strategy RPG The Lord Of The Rings: Heroes Of Middle-earth will launch on mobile devices May 10.

Heroes Of Middle-Earth lets players build teams of the Lord Of The Rings saga’s most recognizable heroes–including Gandalf, Aragorn, and Frodo–and send them into battle against Sauron’s legions via turn-based battles. The game features a story mode with original tales set in the LOTR/Hobbit universe, as well as PvP modes so players can test their best teams against their friends.
