Electronic Arts (EA) and Middle-Earth Enterprises have revealed their latest title in the Lord of the Rings franchise, a mobile game called Heroes of Middle Earth.

The game is designed as a collectible-driven roleplaying game primarily focusing on competitive strategy. It is currently under development through Capital Games, the studio behind Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. According to EA, it will feature "immersive storytelling, turn-based combat, deep collection systems, and a wide roster of characters from across the vast universe of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit."

"The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth is the newest addition to EA’s expanding mobile portfolio as the company continues delivering exceptional experiences and top live services, reaching more players on more platforms around the world," EA wrote in a statement published earlier today, May 9.

Despite its claims of high immersion and storytelling, there is currently no information regarding the narrative of Heroes of Middle Earth. However, we may be able to make some predictions by examining the studio's sister title, Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes.

In Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, players collect various notable Star Wars characters such as Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, Asajj Ventress, Chewbacca, and so on. They can then level up, assign, and battle with these characters through various missions across the galaxy to earn great rewards like unique items and in-game currency.
