EA announces The Lord of the Rings: The White Council

Electronic Arts has announced “The Lord of the Rings: The White Council” is currently in development for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the PC, and will ship to stores sometime in the Fall of 2007. The game will feature an original storyline derived from the theatrical films, allowing players to free-roam Tolkien’s expansive Middle Earth as a man, an elf, a dwarf, or a hobbit. The ultimate objective is to become a hero aligned with the While Council, on which Gandalf sits.

“Our extremely talented and dedicated team is committed to creating an incredible new experience for fans of The Lord of the Rings and role playing gamers,” said Steve Gray, executive producer, The Lord of the Rings, The White Council. “With its next generation gameplay and epic new storyline, we think The Lord of the Rings, The White Council will be a huge success.”

We’ll have more on EA’s latest dip into the Lord of the Rings pool in the months ahead.
