LEGO The Hobbit Announced

by on November 25, 2013

Today TT Games and Warner Bros. have officially announced LEGO The Hobbit, which will launch in spring 2014 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Wii U, 3DS, PC and finally Mac.

LEGO The Hobbit will be based upon the first two films in the Hobbit trilogy (How have they managed to make that into a trilogy?) the first of which was released last year and the 2nd is due to release in cinemas this December. Presumably the lack of the 3rd film is to avoid spoilers or on a more cynical take, is to allow for a sequel game to be released based upon the 3rd film.

Players will be able to play as many characters form the films in a whole host of recognisable locations ranging from Bag End to Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell.

Managing director of TT Games, Tom Stone had this to say about the project.

“We are thrilled to depict the characters and environments of Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth in LEGO form with the LEGO The Hobbit videogame,”

“Our family-friendly take on these thrilling adventures will have kids and parents playing and laughing together as they build and explore in LEGO Middle-earth.”
