Snowblind Studios is developing a new Action RPG for PC/PS3/360 entitled The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. It is to be published by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, and is scheduled to be released sometime this year.

Two days ago was the 119th birthday of JRR Tolkien. On Tolkien's birthday, it is tradition to Toast the Professor in honor of all he's done for modern fantasy and literature.

We're a little late in getting the word out, but if you're a big Tolkien fan and you want to remember the occasion (and celebrate next year for the big 120!), perhaps you'd like a War in the North / Toast the Professor T-Shirt, courtesy of the folks at WBIE?

If so, you'll want to head to our Facebook page and leave a comment under the link to this story. The comment should be your own, personalized toast to Tolkien. Five winners will be selected at random to win the T-shirt (size Large only). You must be age 18 or older to win, and you must live within the US to receive a shirt. If you are selected, you will receive a message via Facebook to confirm.

Cheers to Tolkien, and cheers to Snowblind and WBIE on their upcoming title. If you want to check it out, we have an image gallery (link below).
