I am a huge Tolkien fan, and I have really enjoyed the cinematic adventures that Peter Jackson has taken us on with the Lord of the Rings and now, The Hobbit. So, when one of my favorite properties gets cross-pollinated with LEGO and then turned into a video game, it gets me excited! Check out the announcement trailer for LEGO The Hobbit and join me at the edge of my seat waiting for this baby to hit the shelves!
LEGO The Hobbit sends players of all ages on an unforgettable interactive journey through the first two films in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Players will follow Bilbo Baggins as he is recruited by the Wizard Gandalf to aid Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves. Bilbo leaves the comforts of the Shire on a journey through Middle-earth to help the Dwarves reclaim their lost Kingdom of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he is introduced to ravenous Trolls, dangerous Orcs and, of course, Gollum and his precious Ring. Players will utilize and combine the Dwarves’ unique abilities — often with hilarious results — to solve the most diverse Quests of any LEGO videogame to date.
