Lego The Hobbit coming next year
New adventure game based on the first two films
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group have announced LEGO The Hobbit, the latest addition to the videogame series.
LEGO The Hobbit will be based on the first two films of the trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Following the storyline of the first two films, LEGO The Hobbit will take players on quests throughout Middle-earth, joining Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, and Thorin Oakenshield and Company in their adventures toward the Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor.
Players will be able to take on the form of their favorite Hobbit characters, including Bilbo, Gandalf, and all of the Dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori; each has his own special ability.
Players will visit key locations from the films, including Bag End, Bilbo’s Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton, trek through the High Pass over The Misty Mountains, and explore the depths of Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell.
The game will be available in 2014 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, the Wii U, as well as Windows PC and Mac.
