The last project of Amazon Game Studios it's a MMO based on The Lord of the Rings in collaboration with the Chinese publisher Leyou Technologies Holdings. It will be a game free-to-play and will allow players to explore the Middle-earth with the companions long before the events narrated in the trilogy.
A similar project already exists. We are talking about The Lord of the Rings Online, which is definitely old by standards having 12 years on its shoulders. Unlike the Amazon project, however, it follows Tolkien's trilogy and lets you see what was happening in the rest of Middle-earth while the events we all know took place.
Despite a premise that echoes the upcoming Amazon series, the game is apparently not related. The MMO was actually announced in the 2018, before Amazon's involvement, when the Leyou Athlon Games subsidiary revealed a partnership with Middle-earth Enterprises. There are no other details at the moment.
The team will include the developers of the other Amazon MMO, N, which is still under development.
