Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power isn’t the only Middle-earth project going on right now. Within a few years, console and PC gamers will be able to play a brand new Tolkien-esque video game.

Today, an official Amazon games announcement (opens in new tab) revealed that this video game company has struck a deal with Middle-earth Enterprises via Embracer Group (part of Freemode) to create a brand new massively multiplayer online (MMO) open-world game that will take place in J.R.R Tolkien’s fantasy world. The game will feature “beloved stories of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings literary trilogy.” The Ring of Power video series is reportedly unrelated to the upcoming game.
