The Treason of Isengard is a third-person action/adventure based on the epic fantasy world of J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Beginning with the death of Boromir, the player will guide Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli from the shores of the River Anduin, to the Plains of Rohan, and into the battles at Helm’s Deep. The story then follows the Ents as the player controls Treebeard and unleashes his wrath against Isengard. The game finishes with Frodo, Sam, and Gollum, as they make their way from the River Anduin to the Black Gate of Mordor. Read more for a 40 some of screens and some new concept art ...
