Warner Bros announced today that their upcoming middle-earth set title will now be available in the US on September 20th and in the UK on October 3rd.

“Based on hearing fans’ excitement over the latest chronicle in Middle-earth, Warner Bros will release the action game earlier than originally planned at all participating retailers,” read a press release.

Set in Middle-earth, you’ll play as Talion, a valiant ranger who, moments before his own death, witnesses his family slain the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor. Resurrected by a spirirt of vengeance, and powered with Wraith abilities, Talion ventures into Mordor to exact his revenge, whilst learning about the spirit that compels him and the rings of power.

Written by Red Read Redemption co-writer, Christian Cantamessa, the title will feature an original story set in the Lord of the Ring’s universe.

It will feature The Last of Us actor Troy Baker in the leading role as Talion, Nolan North as Black Hand, Alastair Duncan as Wraith, Laura Bailey as Ioreth, and Liam O’Brien as Gollum.

Developed by Monolith Productions, in collaboration with Middle-earth Enterprises, Peter Jackson and artists from Weta Workshop, who worked on the Academy Award winning film adaptation of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, will also be lending a helping hand with settings, characters and story.

It will be available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
