NetEase is celebrating all things merry in Middle-earth this Yuletide season in The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War. From special puzzles and a limited-time bingo to rumours of hidden treasure with an elusive map, the various events in the geo-strategic war game will keep players in a festive spirit throughout the month.
The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is treating fans to a special visit from mysterious Commanders this season. They’ll all come bearing gifts with each day a player goes online, making the Yule Festival even more joyous. Not to be outdone, Bilbo is also keeping things festive with his riddle challenge, where players can try to complete ten bingo rewards to score a special Bilbo Riddle bonus.
On the other hand, players can also purchase ornaments using decoration tickets to deck out the giant Yule Tree in Hobbiton and score decoration progress rewards. Then, you can kick off the new year with a blast during the fireworks celebration in Hobbiton from December 31st to January 1st.
Ready to join in on all the fun? The Lord of the Rings: Rise to War is available to download on the iOS App Store, the Galaxy Store and on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It’s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
