-Jimmy Kovalski

According to a report at The Verge, Lego Lord of the Rings will feature 85 playable characters, including some who have never appeared in Peter Jackson’s film adaptations. These characters were not named.

Due out October 30, Lego Lord of the Rings will be based on Jackson’s Oscar-winning Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy and will follow the storylines of each film. Unlike the Lego Harry Potter franchise, which was split over two games, the entire Lord of the Rings saga will be told in one game.

The game follows Frodo Baggins and the unlikely fellowship that sets out from Rivendell on a dangerous journey to destroy The One Ring and bring peace to Middle-earth. 

In keeping with the staples of the Lego franchise, Lego Lord of the Rings will be filled with lighthearted interpretations of the source material, with gamers tasked with solving puzzles along the way. 

We will keep you guys informed when more information about the characters become available.
