GUANGZHOU, China, Nov 20, 2020 — NetEase Games today announced a new regional closed beta test for the officially licensed mobile strategy game, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War. The closed beta test will be available on Google Play starting December 9 for players in Australia, Canada and the Philippines.
Designed as a Geo-strategic Seasonal Wargame for mobile devices, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War presents the expansive world of Middle-earth and emphasizes the creation of tactics and strategies in simulated warfare. The game offers a vast battlefield consisting of millions of tiles to recreate various terrains and waters – and all your strategies will be influenced by your geographic position in the game.
A key feature of The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is the Faction system, which enables players to join the various forces in Middle-earth including Gondor, Rohan, Lothlórien, Erebor and many other well-known kingdoms. To claim the One Ring, Tacticians will have to make allies and form Fellowships to overcome challenges on their adventures. Where there are friends, there are also foes; players will have to defeat fierce enemies to ensure their conquest doesn't come to a premature end.
The closed beta test on Google Play will run from December 9 until mid-January. To stay up-to-date with the latest developments, follow us on our official Facebook Page.
