NetEase Inc and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced a partnership for the development of their upcoming strategy game, The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War.

About the game

The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War will be based on the iconic trilogy of books by J.R.R. Tolkien. The game will recreate the fictional world of Middle Earth in all its visually stunning glory along with iconic characters and locations.

The Lord of the Rings is one of the most influential and celebrated literary works in the world, and we are thrilled to be able to work with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment again to deliver another exciting game for global players. With our deep mobile game development experience, world-class R&D team and increasing success in the most established mobile game markets in the world, we are confident we can bring these vibrant characters and spirited world of Middle-earth to life, and impress global fans with an inspiring new way to enjoy The Lord of the Rings.

William Ding, founder and CEO of NetEase Inc

NetEase, along with rival Tencent and other gaming firms, has seen games revenue soaring during the COVID-19 pandemic. We know very little about the game right now. With this NetEase aims to expand its domestic market & derive more proceeds from overseas markets.

Despite being based on a wildly popular adaptation, the initial response to the game has been quite negative. Fans are disappointed & worried about potential in-game purchases. Others think a mobile game is the antithesis of the series. There are many who would much rather play a console game instead.
