A few weeks ago, we reported that the LEGO The Hobbit video game will be released in 2014. Today, WB Games UK has released the official announcement trailer for the game. Obviously, the game will take place through the first two films of the Hobbit Trilogy, An Unexpected Journey and the Desolation of Smaug since those are the only movies released at the moment. Like many previous LEGO games, there will also be humor thrown in to balance all the action-packed levels you’ll be playing through. LEGO The Hobbit will be available on many platforms including Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Nintento Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and PC.
LEGO The Hobbit sends players of all ages on an unforgettable interactive journey through the first two films in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Players will follow Bilbo Baggins as he is recruited by the Wizard Gandalf to aid Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves. Bilbo leaves the comforts of the Shire on a journey through Middle-earth to help the Dwarves reclaim their lost Kingdom of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he is introduced to ravenous Trolls, dangerous Orcs and, of course, Gollum and his precious Ring. Players will utilize and combine the Dwarves’ unique abilities — often with hilarious results — to solve the most diverse Quests of any LEGO videogame to date.
