Warner Bros. Interactive has recently announced a Lord of the Rings spin-off, Guardians of Middle-Earth.  This new title will be a multiplayer online battle arena game, in development by Monolith Productions.  The title is set to debut on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation this fall, as a downloadable item on the XBL Marketplace and PlayStation Network.

The game is said to feature tie-ins to the upcoming Hobbit film by Peter Jackson.  “Guardians of Middle-earth brings up to 10 players together in five versus five competitive multiplayer battle arenas in the epic setting of Middle-earth. The game offers more than 20 iconic guardians, including Gandalf, Sauron, Gollum, Thrain and many more, for players to control in player versus player (PVP) matches. Gamers will have the ability to connect with other players via an in-game voice communication system, as well as access to a comprehensive online stat and leader board system where they can track friends’ victories and defeats, and more.”

“The MOBA genre is wildly popular with PC players and we are excited to bring it to consoles through the lore of Middle-earth,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development at WBIE. “The heroes and villains of Middle-earth are crafted in a way that perfectly intersects with MOBA game features, allowing the development team to create guardians with deep skills and abilities for gamers to master.”
