I don't believe they've announced anything solid regarding a release date, although at one point they said Q1 of 2011.

Game sounds interesting to me. I remember reading up about it and it's supposed to be a Diablo style LOTR game. I'm down for that.

the new releases schedule on here has it labeled as on release for today. dunno if that's for sure though. i'll prolly peek my head on over to family video and see if it's there.

Think that's pretty wrong.
 
Far as I know its been announced a lil before E3 2010 and we have not heard or seen much from it since, a shame because from what I heard (third person class/3squad based combat with skill trees and buyable weapons/equipment) it sounded pretty fun.
 
I just want a good LotR hack and slasher!

@TaliciaDragonsong:  i hear ya. i looked it up on youtube to see if there was any game play footage but the only footage i could find was from pax and it was off a hand camera from in a crowd so you couldn't see the screens well.

The difference here is that it's developed by Snowblind. That in and of itself is enough to get me reasonably interested.

Yeah sounded interesting, though it was supposed to be released today no?Hopefully they push the release date for lots of juicy polish.

I remember hearing on some podcast that it was scheduled for a spring release.

I hope it is released soon, this game could be awesome if they make it in the same vein as baldurs gate dark alliance

Rumors indicate that no one has any idea on the release date and that Snowblind made everything think they were going to announce a release date, but only announced that the game would be at Pax East.
