E3 2012: Guardians of Middle Earth debut trailer
Oh look another Lord of the Rings video game. Can't remember the last time I enjoyed a LOTR game, maybe I never did. The debut trailer tells us nothing about the game - How it looks, gameplay, etc. But it looks epic and Gollum trying to take down Gandalf with a huge rock is just weird. But don't be fooled, this is no ordinary action adventure like past LOTR games.
Guardians of Middle Earth is actually a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) and it's for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. MOBA are game such as DOTA, Heroes of Newreth, and League of Legend. So yea, a bit weird if you ask me. It will be a five on five match and players can choose up to 20 iconic characters from the Lord of the Rings world .The game is being developed over at Monolith Productions(F.E.A.R 1 and 2, Gotham City Imposters), and if this indeed plays like games such as DOTA, playing it with a controller will feel really off.
Best part of the trailer? Gollum looking badass thinking he can take Gandalf solo.
