Game News The Lord of the Rings: An Impressive Multiplayer Game Unveiled at Summer Game Fest 2022
While the Netflix Geeked Summer 2022 was doing its show, another conference was launched: the Epic Games Store Summer Showcase. The latter has also revealed the existence of a brand new Lord of the Rings game: The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria.
Gollum gives way to dwarves
While we thought we had news of Lord of the Rings: Gollum, here comes a completely different production of The Lord of the Rings. In effect, it was during the Epic Games Store Summer Showcase that a certain The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria was revealed.
Unlike Lord of the Rings: Gollum or even Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, this brand new proposal is far from what we are used to. This time, the title offers us to take control of dwarves with ax and hammer well sharpened.
The multiplayer game with many ideas
The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria is a multiplayer production by Free Range Games that invites several participants to unite to explore the sprawling corridors of Moria. Unfortunately for them, these narrow areas are obviously filled with enemies. It will therefore be necessary to redouble our courage to survive.
Moreover, to extend your life experience, it is also possible to collect many resources to forge new weapons and armor, but also a place where it is good to live, because yes, crafting is an important dimension of this new production.
The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria was billed as an Epic Games Store exclusive. The title will be released in 2023.
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
How to follow the Summer Game Fest 2022?
On JV, we will react live to announcements from the LeStream channel alongside Maxildan and Aymeric Lallée in particular. The program will also be directly visible as a teaser on JV’s homepage. And for those who prefer reading, you will of course find our news throughout the conference. A written summary will also be available
What is the program for Summer Game Fest 2022?

Geoff Keighley further announced: “We have a few new game announcements for this show and hopefully a few surprises if all holds together. But it’s definitely a show that mostly focuses on things that are foretold.”
