The Lord of the Rings MMO Announced by Amazon Game Studios

The Lord of the Rings series will be receiving a free-to-play MMO game that will be released for both PC and consoles. The announcement came from Amazon Game Studios who will be co-developing the game alongside Leyou and Athlon Games. Some of the developers who will be working on The Lord of the Rings MMO include veterans who have worked on other MMO type games such as EverQuest, World of Warcraft, Destiny, and Planetside. Amazon Game Studios is also working on another MMO titled New World, which is set in an alternate 17th-century world.

The Lord of the Rings MMO is not expected to be connected to Amazon Prime’s upcoming Lord of the Rings TV series but is instead expected to be for the most part self-contained. While details are currently scarce about the game other than the fact that is a free-to-play MMO and will be on both consoles and PC, expect us to cover any news as it comes out.
