With E3 taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, two new "Lord of the Rings"-related games have been announced with new trailers. First up is Warner Bros.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings is based on "The Lord of the Rings" motion picture trilogy and follows the original storylines of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. The game takes players along on the adventures of Frodo Baggins and his unlikely fellowship as they set out on a perilous journey to destroy The One Ring and save Middle-earth. Kids, tweens, teens and parents can traverse the Misty Mountains, explore the Mines of Moria, knock on the Black Gate of Mordor, and partake in epic battles with Orcs, Uruk-hai, the Balrog and other fearsome foes while harnessing the humor and imagination of LEGO gameplay to solve puzzles and explore Middle-earth.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has also released the debut cinematic trailer for Guardians of Middle-earth, the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game, giving gamers a glimpse of the guardians who will clash in the epic showdown between good and evil.
