'LEGO Lord of the Rings' hands-on video: Exploring the Shire - watch

By and Andrew Laughlin
LEGO Lord of the Rings is out today on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Digital Spy goes hands-on with the game based on the classic fantasy series, investigating the Shire in the game's openly explorable hub-world that's new to the franchise.

Announced earlier this year, LEGO Lord of the Rings encompasses the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy and features co-op multiplayer.

For the first time in the series, LEGO Lord of the Rings will feature actual dialogue taken from the films and performed by the original actors.

Traveller's Tales' last game, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, also featured voiced dialogue, but this will be the first LEGO game using original voices from the source material.

A new backpack system will allow players to store special items found during the adventure, granting characters new abilities that they may not otherwise possess.

First impressions suggest that this is the "most ambitious LEGO game yet", with "a visually rich, fleshed-out hub environment packed with content". Digital Spy's full review will be published later today.

LEGO Lord of the Rings is out now in North America and Europe.
