The Lord of the Rings: War for PC is a turn-based 3D strategy title set in the fantastical world of the Lord of the Rings film franchise many years after Fellowship of the Ring managed to defeat the dark lord Sauron. However, in this ambitious strategy game, the evil One Ring has resurfaced in the fortress of Dol Guldur, pushing the stewards of Middle Earth to gather their armies once again.

With the ability to visit all the famous locations of middle earth, interact with legendary characters described in the books, and command its most famous armies, The LOTR: War gives players of all ages chance to become fully immersed in the spectacular fantasy world created by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Main features

The Lord of the Rings: War features several factions depicted in famous LOTR films, including the armies of Rohan, Minas Tirith, Mount Doom, and others.

The players are tasked to build and expand their settlement, collect resources, and build new structures that can facilitate the training of new and more capable armies including not only spearmen, archers, and knights, but also fantastical creatures of light and dark from Tolkien mythology.

Recreated with detailed 3D visuals, players are empowered to explore all four corners of Middle Earth, engage in combat with an incredible variety of opponents, and prepare their strongholds for sieges that become more and more epic with each new premium gaming season that developers regularly introduce.


Originally published on mobile platforms in late 2021, this game quickly become one of the most sought-after strategy titles on PC. But even though it never got an official port to a home PC platform, players today can experience this title using modern Android emulators such as LDPlayer and Bluestacks.

These applications allow the seamless loading of thousands of Android applications, including fully 3D rendered games such as The LOTR: War, with access to customizable controls, rendering in high resolution and high framerate modes, and even full access to official Android online infrastructure and game servers.

  • Epic battles and siege warfare
  • Detailed Middle-earth environment
  • Playable iconic characters
  • Multiplayer modes
  • Immersive storyline
  • Repetitive gameplay
  • Limited faction variety
  • Long load times
  • Lack of innovation

While The Lord of the Rings: War features a central story campaign, it must be noted that the game lacks meaningful endgame activities for F2P players. Instead, the game promotes heavy use of its in-game shop which is home to a staggering number of cosmetic items, progression boosters, and premium items that can dramatically destabilize the combat balance between free and premium users.
