To mark the release of LEGO The Hobbit, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have released a new trailer for the game which you can check out in the player below. In addition, Warner Bros. has confirmed that though the game only covers the events of the first two films in "The Hobbit Trilogy" additional content will be released in the future that covers the events of the third film, The Hobbit: There and Back Again.
LEGO The Hobbit will take players on epic quests and a variety of adventures as they explore key locations from the films, such as Lake-town, Dale, Erebor, Bag End, Goblin-town, Mirkwood, Rivendell and the treacherous High Pass over the Misty Mountains. Fans will also assume the roles of their favorite characters, including Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf, and the Dwarves of Erebor: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori, each possessing a unique and hilarious ability. One of the main new features of the game allows players to utilize the Dwarves’ combined abilities such as buddy fighting, two-player attack, staff climb, mace swing and belly bounce to help them fight Orcs and fouler things or to progress through the game.
Featuring 16 different levels and over 90 playable characters, LEGO The Hobbit is available now for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC. It will be available for the Wii U system on April 22.
