It sounds like it's going to be a long time until we actually get to see this project in action, but Amazon Game Studios has announced that it's working on a The Lord of the Rings MMO. It's going to be a free-to-play title, and it's aiming to release on "PC and consoles". It's fair to assume it's a PS5 title.

The press release for this one doesn't say much, unfortunately. Amazon Game Studios VP Christoph Hartmann goes on about "bringing Middle-earth to life", and basically just being respectful to the beloved source material, but there's no real mention of what the game's going to be like. Heck, the project doesn't even have a name yet, let alone any kind of release window.

It's always difficult to get excited about announcements like this, but what would you want to see from a new Lord of the Rings game? Is an MMO the route you'd take, or would you prefer something more traditional? Don't be tempted by the ring in the comments section below.
