Along with this, it has been revealed that this title takes place during the fourth age, something that we have not seen much, even in the books. This is the description of the project:

The story of The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria takes the players beyond the books towards the fourth age of Middle Earth, the fantastic world created by J.R.R. Tolkien. Convened to the mountains cloudy by Lord Gimli Lockbeer, the players take control of a dwarf company in charge of recovering the lost spoil from the homeland of the dwarves of Moria, known as Khazad-Dûm or Dwarrowdelf, in the depths under their feet. Your search will require strength, deepening in Moria’s mines to recover your treasures. The players will join forces to survive, manufacture, build and explore the iconic and extensive mines. The brave expeditionaries must be attentive while stalking mysterious dangers.

Similarly, this is what Chris Scholz, CEO of Free Range Games, commented on the matter:

In Free Range Games we are absolutely delighted to finally reveal The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria. J.R.R. Tolkien and all her creations within the Middle Earth are very close to our hearts, and this project presents an incredible opportunity to create new experiences born of one of the best stories ever told. We are investing a lot of passion in the game to give players an unforgettable experience.

Editor’s note:

As a fan of The Lord of the Rings, I am excited about the idea of a game that takes place during the fourth age where the dwarves are the main approach. I would like this delivery to reach consoles in the future. We need more games in this series.
