The game was outed by inserts mentioning it in actual Lord of the Rings Lego sets. Unfortunately, the fact that it exists and is probably coming out late this fall, that’s all we know — there are zero screenshots or videos or anything. Still, I feel pretty safe in declaring FUCK AND YES. I’m sure Saruman will be one of the unlockable playable character, meaning I’ll be able to run around and fuck shit up as a Lego Christopher Lee. It’s.. well, okay, I got to do it in the Lego Star Wars games, but still! It’s all I’ve ever wanted! Thanks to everyone who sent in the tip. (Via Gamespot)
