Electronic Arts has today confirmed that an open-world RPG based in Tolkien's mythology will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation3, and PC, in late 2007. The game, Lord of the Rings: The White Council, will follow an original storyline based on Tolkien's classic literary works and Peter Jackson's film trilogy, and will see players control one of the free peoples of Middle-Earth. The aim of the game, which will allow players to openly explore the land, is to become allied to The White Council, made up of the likes of Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel, and Saruman.
"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."
