Warner Bros Interactive went gritty at Gamescom this year with new screens from Batman: Arkham City, Gotham City Impostors, Lord of the Rings: War in the North and, most gruesome of all, Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster.

Hey, do you all remember the Lord of the Rings film trilogy? Remember how much you loved -- err, still love them? This trailer for War in the North certainly hopes you do; it focuses largely on how the new, Snowblind-developed title ties into the films.
