Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group has announced that the latest LEGO game will be called LEGO The Hobbit.
While The Hobbit is being split into a movie trilogy, LEGO The Hobbit will only be based on the first two films – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) and The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug (December 2013).
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has told AnalogAddiction, “Players will visit key locations from the films, including Bag End, Bilbo’s Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton, trek through the treacherous High Pass over The Misty Mountains, and explore the depths of Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell. Along the way, players will solve countless puzzles, partake in Treasure Quests and battle with Orcs, Trolls and fouler things. They will also be able to mine for gems, discover loot from enemies, and craft powerful magical items or build immense new LEGO structures.”
TT Games is no stranger to the Lord of the Rings universe. The team developed LEGO Lord of the Rings in 2012.
LEGO The Hobbit is set for a 2014 release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, 3DS, PC and Mac (and breathe).
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced another game set in the Lord of the Rings universe last week.
AnalogAddiction will bring you more news and trailers about LEGO The Hobbit as it is distributed.
