The LEGO Video Games blog has given us some gameplay details of the LEGO The Hobbit Video Game. There have been some big improvements while navigating through the game or the HUB as the designers call it. In these HUBs, players can now go inside Hobbit houses, find secret tombs, cellars, and Elven and Dwarven ruins. In these secret areas, you can expect to find some nice hidden treasures. These items can be used to enhance character abilities and also to unlock new quests in a brand new quest chain system.
Another thing you can do in story mode is crafting new items by the way of the Blacksmith. You will have to mine hidden LEGO ores found throughout Middle-earth. Also defeating Orcs, Goblins, and Wargs can also net you some of these loot items and can be used to create a Mithril Weapon. Perfect your Blacksmithing skill and you could even create “perfect” items that glows to show its unparalleled craftsmanship. Check out our video below of the PC Demo.
