gome-frodo alt-300x250You mean he wasn’t in it already? Clearly not, as The Hobbit (not that hobbit, the first furry foot that movie-goers saw. Shush) joins Guardians of Middle Earth’s DLC shelf today.

Frodo ‘perma-frown’ Baggins is the hobbit (not that one-shush) who carries ‘the one ring’ all the way from Bag End to Trilogy’s End during the Lord of the Rings films and spends a lot of time shouting people’s names.

In Guardians of Middle Earth he is described as a ‘Striker’ – presumably a hit and run sort – and comes with a spat of sneaky sounding abilities that might make him good in a scrap. The full Frodo Breakdown is as follows:

Frodo’s Bio:
Frodo Baggins is an exceptionally famous Hobbit, best known as the ring-bearer during the Quest for the Ring. As an instrumental member of the Fellowship of the Ring, Frodo’s role in the defeat of Sauron during the War of the Ring made him one of the most famous Hobbits in the history of Middle-earth. He later joined the Elves in Aman to rest peacefully until the end of his days.

Frodo’s Abilities:

  • Heavy Burden: Gains stealth at the cost of his health
  • Light of Earendil: Blinds and stuns nearby enemies
  • Mithril Mail: Frodo briefly shields himself and gains resistances
  • Sting’s Bite: Damages and slows an enemy

Frodo’s Class:

So if you’re the roguish type, perhaps it’s time to see if Frodo could actually go toe to toe with Sauron in a fair fight. I say fair, but those abilities don’t sound it at all.

Guardians of Middle Earth, in case you’re unaware, is a MOBA game, in the same genre as the likes of League of Legends and DOTA 2, but is available for consoles and not PC. Developers Monolith Soft have been supporting it with a lot of DLC since release and if you’re after finding out what the MOBA genre is all about you can do far worse than give it a whirl.

But don’t expect Frodo to beat Sauron. I wouldn’t.

Guardians of Middle-Earth is out now on Xbox LIVE Arcade and the PlayStation Network.
