NetEase Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that the closed beta test in Australia and the Philippines for the officially licensed mobile strategy game, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War, on Google Play will start from 15th July. Tolkien fans have another opportunity to step into Middle-earth and command their own armies with their favourite characters leading the charge.

In The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War, players will take on the role of a leader and build their armies for conquest, strategically expand their territory and form new alliances in pursuit of the One Ring. The game also features iconic characters who offer unique skills in battle, including Aragorn and Elrond, among other beloved characters.

Key to The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is the formation of Fellowships, which encourages social interaction and teamwork. Players can build a small group of allies for a perfectly coordinated and executed attack or defense, but as stakes become higher and territories are won, it will be crucial to band together into a larger network of alliances. Where there are Fellowships there are also enemies; players will have to face and defeat fierce forces to ensure their dominance doesn’t come to a premature end.

The closed beta test on Google Play will run from 15th July and will last about 3 weeks. The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is scheduled for a 2020 release.
