Lego The Hobbit is Based on the First Two Hobbit Films

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today confirmed the rumours of a Lego The Hobbit game after leaked promotional materials.

Lego The Hobbit will be based around the characters and stories from the first two of Peter Jackson’s trilogy of films interpreted from J.R.R Tolkien’s book The Hobbit.

Players will take on the journey to the Dwarven kingdom Erebor, and work with Thorin and his party to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and its vast treasures. On the way there are Orcs and Trolls to be slain, loot to take and puzzles to be solved.

Playable characters include Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf and the Dwarves: Thorin, Kili, Fili, Oin, Gloin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori – all equipped with a unique special ability.

Lego The Hobbit will be released in 2014 on all current gaming platforms.
