If you're looking forward to The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria, good news: you get to look forward to it for longer! Yes, the co-op survival game set in Tolkien's ever-popular fantasy world has been delayed, though only on PS5.
Developer North Beach Games shared the following statement on social media today, announcing a delay to 5th December, 2023:
The PlayStation 5 version of The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria will now launch both digitally and physically at retail on December 5th, 2023," it reads. "We are taking this additional time to improve various aspects of the PS5 version, and to ensure we can deliver the highest possible quality for PlayStation 5 games."
The team goes on to apologise for the delay and thanks everyone for their "ongoing support and patience".
Return to Moria is a game in which you play as dwarves heading back to, well, Moria. Playing solo or with three others in online co-op, you'll delve into the depths to find treasure and build yourselves and your equipment up for future expeditions. Procedurally generated stages mean it won't ever be quite the same journey, and Gimli will make an appearance, portrayed by none other than John Rhys-Davies.
The game will be launching later this month on PC, but if you're planning to play it on PS5, you'll need to wait a few extra weeks.
