Season one of LOTR: Rise to War will conclude on 28 November 2021, which will reset the entire map, including regions and tiles collected.
Lord of the Rings (LOTR): Rise to War is a popular mobile strategy game. As the name suggests, it is based on the classic trilogy, Lord of the Rings.
The game reminds players that the epic tales of old, be it of love, friendships or glory, are in days gone by. A new War of the Ring is on the horizon, and the fate of Middle-earth now lies in the players’ hands.
A new, powerful evil force has been growing, and it is sweeping through every part of the fantasy realm of Lord of the Rings. The various factions are thus desperate to seize control of the One Ring and take dominion over Middle-earth.
The game takes place in the Third Age of Middle-earth, and it offers a faithful and beautiful interpretation of the fictional world of Arda.
It allows players to embark on new adventures in order to build armies for conquest. They will need to strategically expand their region in pursuit of the One Ring.
Players should thus choose carefully. After choosing, they will have to complete a tutorial mission in order to understand the mechanics and gameplay.
Once they have completed the tutorial, it is advised that they follow the tasks to level up. The tasks can be found by selecting the rolled-up scroll on the bottom right side of the screen. Players will receive various resources as a reward for completing the tasks.
To obtain more resources, they will need to acquire more land. The land players own are indicated by a green border, while the purple tiles indicate land which belongs to other players in the same faction.
Players in other factions have red tiles and computer-owned land is indicated with white borders. It is advised that they first take control of the computer-owned tiles before attempting to take land from an enemy.
As mentioned above, players have a choice to either side with evil or good, and then build their territory accordingly. This means that they can either build Warbands or Fellowships to collaborate with other members on attack plans against their rivals.
In the game, they will have the opportunity to improve the bonds with their alliances on the battlefield, with the goal to expand territories on the tile-based map design.
Each victory will claim a piece of land, while each defeat will result in a loss of land. Lord of the Rings: Rise to War sets players on a path to not only outwit and defeat their rivals, but to also seize the ultimate prize: The One Ring.
Similar to other free-to-play games, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War will consist of various seasons. Each season will bring with them new and exciting changes to the game.
It is believed that a season will last approximately two to three months. At the end of a season, players will be rewarded, depending on how much they have contributed to their Faction goals.
