The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria Gets PS5 and PC Release Date

Free Range Games have announced a release date for the upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria. The studio says The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria will launch on PS5 and PC on 24 October. The Xbox Series X/S launch will then take place sometime in early 2024.

There’s a lot riding on The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria. After the abysmal failure of the recent Gollum game, players are likely a little sceptical about this title too. However, Return to Moria is a very different game.

It is set beyond the books and into the Fourth Age of Middle-earth. Players take control of a company of dwarves who are tasked to reclaim the lost spoils from the Dwarven homeland of Moria. Fans will also know this location as Khazad-dûm or Dwarrowdelf.

By the look of things, The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is a mining game with a bit of RPG and RTS added into it. Players create their own custom Dwarf at the start of the game and will head into the mines of Moria alone or together with a company of Dwarves or friends online.

As they explore these procedurally generated mines, they will fight monsters and beasts and salvage the treasures and minerals they find. Sounds like good fun if you ask me. The official game description reads:

The story of The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria takes players beyond the books and into the Fourth Age of Middle-earth, the fantastical world created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Summoned to the Misty Mountains by Lord Gimli Lockbearer, players take control of a company of Dwarves tasked to reclaim the lost spoils from the Dwarven homeland of Moria—known as Khazad-dûm or Dwarrowdelf—in the depths below their very feet. Their quest will require fortitude and teamwork, delving deep into the Mines of Moria to recover its treasures and in the hopes of one day restoring them to their former glory.

In The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria players will create their own custom Dwarf before venturing into the cavernous mines of Moria alone or together with a company of fellow Dwarves online. Each adventure into the depths will bring unique challenges and opportunities through the use of procedurally generated environments, creating nearly endless possibilities as players seek the deepest delves of the Dwarves. As they venture ever deeper, the Dwarves will need to ensure their metal is ready to meet the dangers that lie within, crafting resilient armours and finely honed weapons capable of protecting against and defeating all manner of goblin, arachnoid, or more mysterious foes they may encounter. Excavate the mysteries of the Misty Mountains, extract precious metals prized by Dwarves, rebuild and refire forges that have long since gone cold, and learn the secret of the Shadow that lurks within.
