A free Lord of the Rings MMO co-created by Athlon Games in China and Amazon, due out in 2022. Athlon Games is a subsidiary of Leyou which was recently acquired by Tencent. Among the acquisition documents, information was found that the game will be released in the period from Q4 2021 to Q1 2023.
Unfortunately, almost nothing is known about the game. The only plot details: the action will take place thousands of years before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring. There will be many locations of creatures and characters, and for the universe invented by Tolkien, this will be one of the first big games in many years.
The MMO will be the first game from Athlon Games. Work on it began back in 2019.
