EA announces the return of the Lord of the Rings games

As you might recall, EA released a number of Lord of the Rings games in the 2000s, during the original Xbox generation. It’s already got a number of fans calling for some console releases, and for EA to perhaps bring back some of its classic LOTR games. We’re sure a series like this would go great on Xbox’s Backward Compatible service. If EA could revive any of its older Middle-Earth games, what would you like to see return? Tell us down in the comments.

EA has formally extended its agreement with Middle-Earth Enterprises, the sole rights holders of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It’s wonderful news, but the sole game announced (for the time being) is a new mobile title named The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth. It will be a collectible card RPG with turn-based gameplay and elements of fantasy and adventure.
