Ares Games is a new Italian publisher that will debut in 2011 with a second edition of War of the Ring, the highly acclaimed board game from designers Roberto Di Meglio, Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi.

In a press release announcing the acquisition of rights from Sophisticated Games to publish the title, Christoph Cianci, CEO of Ares Games, said, "We are proud to be able to bring back to the international gaming market a prestigious game like War of the Ring. The game has been out of the market for a long time and there is a big anticipation for this second edition, which we forecast to release within the end of this year." The second edition of War of the Ring will appear in English in Q4 2011, with editions in other languages planned for release in Q2 2012.

This edition of War of the Ring will use the original illustrations from John Howe, but in a new graphic design with larger tarot-sized cards and a revised rulebook "with changes to some key game elements to make it even more balanced and engaging," according to the press release.
