The Fellowship of the Ring is an Xbox title slated for release in fourth quarter 2002 and is being developed by Seattle-based WXP, Inc. The game is a third-person action title in which gamers play as three members of the fellowship, Frodo, Aragorn and Gandalf, on a journey from the Shire to the depths of Moria and all the way to the River Anduin.
For the Gameboy Advance, The Lord of the Rings, Part 1 is based on characters and situations from the first two books of the classic Tolkien epic. It allows players complete control over the entire Fellowship on their adventure from the beginning of "The Fellowship of the Ring" to partway through "The Two Towers". It will feature an isometric graphics engine combined with an intuitive character interaction and combat control system to highlight this immersive, RPG-style game. This title is also scheduled for Q4 2002.
More titles for other platforms, including PC, are slated for later release.
