LORD OF THE RINGS Video Game Fan Trailer Is So Good We Wish It Was Real

What better time to pull out a the Lord of the Rings video game that just before the new series power rings spell? Unfortunately, that doesn’t actually happen. But an imaginative trailer shows snippets of a the Lord of the Rings game we really wish was real. Watch the video below, showing a the Lord of the Rings created with Unreal Engine 5 game creation software, and you’ll see how epic it would be. From Rivendell to Mordor, every scene is magnificent. We can imagine the gameplay, from battling Helms Deep to writing books in the Shire.

We saw this teaser of a trailer on RBC. The Enfant Terrible YouTube channel compiles many other video game trailers using the Unreal Engine. It is a game engine created by Epic Games and used in both real video games and fan videos. This is even part of the creation of the volume by ILM to create digital sets for The Mandalorian and other shows.

The creators used the software to create fan videos for each franchise. And even long-forgotten rides at Disney theme parks. But it is also part of some of the most popular games like star wars Jedi: Fallen Order to Batman: Arkham series. Unreal Engine 5 was released a few months ago and we can only guess how it will fit into our entertainment for years to come. And even our daily life. Other virtual environment applications include in the fields of medical and architectural design.

While there have been many iterations of Middle-earth based video games, none of them look as good as this version. Hoping for a day as epic as the trilogy itself. The real question is, would the video game include Tom Bombadil?
