Lord of the Rings: War in the North demo released exclusively on OnLive

Any PC and Mac should be able to play it.

The demo for The Lord of the Rings: War in the North has been released exclusively on OnLive.

War in the North is the co-op, action RPG that tells a story parallel to that of The Lord of the Rings book and films.

To try the demo, either download the small, free OnLive client for PC and Mac, or go through the OnLive Game System console.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North demo is free to try.

The demo has all features enabled, apparently, including multiplayer co-op. That's all we know about the demo's content.

Interestingly, it sounds like OnLive may be the only UK destination offering The Lord of the Rings: War in the North demo prior to the game's 25th November release.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North will be released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

You'll need to co-operate to survive.
