Written by aquitodovale

Here is all the information we have on The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria, a survival set in the universe of The Lord of the Rings.

There are many games that in the last two decades have been inspired by the works of the British writer, but although new ones continue to emerge, we believe that the narrative universe born from the genius of JRR Tolkien has still been exploited very little by video games. The most obvious clue in support of this theory is related to the enormous attention that products drawn from The Lord of the Rings still manage to carve out today, even when they have a small independent team behind them instead of a large company that triple grinder A.

It is no coincidence, therefore, that The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria emerged from theEpic Games Summer Showcase as one of the most interesting productions of the entire event, and since we know very well that rings, hobbits, wizards and orcs manage to tickle your curiosity like little else, we thought of summarize all the information of The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria in our possession on this peculiar survival coming to PC during the spring of 2023, which will take us to explore the ruins of the lost capital of the dwarves in the Misty Mountains. This time, however, trying not to wake any Balrogs.

The depths of the Moria mines

The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is a third-person survival classic set during the fourth era of Middle-earth, the era immediately following that in which Frodo and Samvise Gamgee reach the caldera of Mount Doom to destroy the One.

In the shoes of a daredevil company of dwarves summoned by Gimli himself, our goal will be to venture into the depths of the mines of Moria to reclaim the ancient homeland of the dwarves, while also making our own the riches and treasures that the mines have guarded for eons.

The game is developed by Free Range Gamesan independent team that cannot count on a significant pedigree, but which seems to have very clear ideas on how to pack an exciting survival experience.

The studio has chosen to render entirely procedural the construction of the game world and for this reason each adventure in the bowels of the mountain will be significantly different from the previous ones. Having recited the password and having crossed the gate of the mines, the only point of reference will be the company of our wingmen, since The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is meant to be lived together in a group that can arrive. to include the beauty of eight players.

The first film in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy quite effectively staged the inhospitality of the mines of Moria, and although in the fourth era there may no longer be a Balrog to keep its secrets, the belly of the mountain is still a hostile to man and full of dangers. From this point of view, Return to Moria is configured as the most classic of video games survivalin which we will have to carefully manage the health, hunger, thirst, fatigue and temperature of our nano staff, which can also be customized through an editor about which we still know very little.

By digging deeper and deeper into the heart of the mountain, players will be able to gain access to precious metals and gems to use in the forging more and more powerful weapons and equipment. As Peregrino Tuc knows very well, every noise tends to attract the attention of those who inhabit the mines and the company will always be asked to carefully choose what to forge and how much to dig, to avoid gaining the interest of the orcs and other terrible creatures hidden in the underground of the Misty Mountains.

Surviving against these threats will not be taken for granted and, since armed clashes will be particularly frequent, it will be decisive to conquer the powerful dwarven artifacts hidden in the depths of Moria, like swords able to light up in the presence of orcs, amulets with special effects, up to maps that indicate where to find Mithril, the precious dwarven metal that can obviously be forged into legendary weapons and armor.
