On 22 September, Tales of the Shire was announced by Private Division and Wētā Workshop. The Lord of the Rings game seems to fulfil a request that many people have had for a long time: the ability to just relax and be a Hobbit, eating elevenses and living a cosy life.

Naturally, fans are excited about the project, and are already hypothesising about what the game may bring.

A cosy Lord of the Rings game is coming in 2024

The announcement of Tales of the Shire has not given too much about what the game may entail away.

What we do know so far, is that Take Two's Private Division and Wētā Workshop's Hobbit game will be available on both PC and console at some point in 2024.

On the Tales of the Shire website, Private Division said: “Your cosy Hobbit life awaits in Tales of the Shire, a heart-warming, new, The Lord of the Rings game due out in 2024 on console and PC.”

Lord of the Rings fans can't wait to live out their Hobbit dreams

After the game was announced, fans of the Lord of the Rings franchise expressed their excitement at the upcoming cosy game.

After the recent disaster that was Gollum, and the announcement of Amazon Games' Lord of the Rings MMO, the desire for a good game in the franchise has only been growing.

The initial announcement Tweet got a lot of positive attention, with even the Xbox account saying it is excited to eat second breakfast in the Shire.

"This is everything I've been needing in my life! I can't wait to play itttttttttt," said one Twitter user.

Another commented: "I cannot articulate how excited I am for this Just know it's a lot."

With excitement high, and a lot of comments about potatoes, there seems to be a lot of hope that Tales of the Shire will be the Lord of the Rings game that fans so desperately want.
