The Lord Of The Rings Unreal Engine 5 RPG stuns fans

The Lord Of The Rings Unreal Engine 5 RPG stuns fans

This Lord of the Rings concept game looks stunning!

J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit novels are two of the most iconic fantasy tales of all time, with their influence seen throughout the world of entertainment.

Aside from the iconic novels, we have been treated to Peter Jackson's live-action The Lord of the Rings adaptations, a variety of board games, video games and much more. There is also the Amazon Prime series The Rings of Power, but I’m not too sure about that one.

In relation to the world of video games, we have had some absolute bangers inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien's novels. Just a few video games that come to mind include The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), The Battle for Middle-earth, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor as well as the charming LEGO games. Oh, and there was also a recent game inspired by Gollum, but the less said about that, the better.

Sadly, it’s been a while since we’ve had a truly epic video game inspired by The Lord of the Rings. However, there is a promising game on the way with Return to Moria which is set to arrive later this month on PC and PS5, then for Xbox Series X/S in 2024.

If you missed games like The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, a game that desperately needs a remaster, then a gameplay video uploaded to the YouTube channel GameV has you covered.

The Lord of the Rings game in question is created independently using Unreal Engine 5 running at a glorious 4K/60fps giving us a taste of what we could be getting. Sadly, as this is a concept demo, it means that it’s not a game that will be released to the public.

The gameplay takes place in the location of the Battle of Helms Deep which features prominently in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers as Sauron’s Army terrorises the lands of Middle-earth.

To be honest, this concept gameplay looks quite incredible. If only Electronic Arts would remake The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, but until then I will not say: do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.
