Developed at EA Los Angeles by the same team that created the award-winning real-time strategy (RTS) PC hits Commander & Conquer: Red Alert 2 and Command & Conquer: Generals, The Battle for Middle-Earth will capture the epic battles from The Lord of the Rings films and deliver them to PC gamers.

"The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-Earth will give gamers the first chance to play the epic battles they've witnessed in Peter Jackson's films," said Mark Skaggs, VP and Executive Producer of the game. "Fans will be able to immerse themselves in Middle-Earth and experience The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy like never before, including controlling the evil side of the conflict."

The Battle for Middle-Earth utilizes the Generals game engine, and in the game players can select from the different "good" or "evil" campaigns, where they will be given the freedom to command a variety of major armies from the films, each with their own distinct strengths and weaknesses. Prepare for war by creating offensive and defensive strategies set in the memorable battle locations taken straight from the big screen. The Battle for Middle-Earth RTS game will utilize the digital assets created for the films and will feature exclusive voiceovers from the real actors as well as actual movie footage from the three films.
