LEGO The Hobbit is due for release in spring 2014 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation4, PS Vita, Wii U, 3DS, Windows and Mac. (What no Amstrad?)
The game is based on the first two films of The Hobbit Trilogy, with players joining Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey on their adventures in Middle-earth.
“We are thrilled to depict the characters and environments of Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth in LEGO form with the LEGO The Hobbit video game,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “Our family-friendly take on these thrilling adventures will have kids and parents playing and laughing together as they build and explore in LEGO Middle-earth.”
Locations taken from the films will include Bag End, Bilbo’s Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton, The Misty Mountains, Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell.
