In The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria, players will join the Dwarves as they embark on a quest to reclaim their lost home of Moria beneath the Misty Mountains.

They can even rebuild the ancient kingdom of Khazad-dûm and resurrect old mines and forges. Crafting plays a crucial role, with players able to create legendary Dwarven armor, weapons, and structures.

The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria also features co-op multiplayer, allowing players to adventure with friends and experience the game together. The customization options for Dwarven characters are extensive, allowing players to create their own unique identities.
