The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria team today announced the game has gone gold, or Mithril, ahead of its October 24 PC release. The game showcases its Dwarf creator, and actor John Rhys-Davies will voice Gimli, who summons the Dwarves
As part of the game’s launch, the team released the game’s opening cinematic, which introduces the journey and tasks ahead as well as John Rhys-Davies’ return as Gimli Lockbearer.
It will be up to your dwarves to return some of these lost treasures to Moria, especially those that were taken from Khazad-dûm, also called Dwarrowdelf and the Mines of Moria.
Throughout the game, you’ll be able to customize your own Dwarf character and go on an adventure into the mines either on your own or with others. Of course, the goals you reach will be different each time you play. The game will send you deeper into the mines and guide you to new discoveries along the way.
It’s a survival crafting game, which means you’ll have to craft since you’re playing as dwarves who are expert craftsmen, of course. They’ll need their finely honed skills to get ready to take on the challenges and dangers that await them.
In those deep mines, you’ll need to gather the right metals in order to create armor and weapons that will protect you, as well as help you defeat goblins, spiders, and any other enemies.
Upon going gold on October 24th, the game will be released on PC via the Epic Games Store. It will then be available on consoles in early 2024, beginning with the PlayStation 5 on December 5th.
Developed by Free Range Games and published by North Beach Games, The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is an upcoming survival-crafting video game set in the fictional Middle-earth created by J.R.R. Tolkien.
