I can say I’ve never played a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) style game like DoTA, but I may have to once Guardians of Middle-Earth releases this December alongside The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Guardians of Middle-Earth will be available for download on both the Xbox 360, and PS3. It’ll feature some of the more iconic characters and locations from Tolkien’s universe with Gandalf, Sauron, and Gollum already being confirmed to be available as guardians. The game will feature PvP battles of 5 on 5. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this game even if it’s rooted in a genre where my cherry hasn’t even been remotely popped yet. You’ve been needing to read up on the whole MOBA gaming genre…
[UPDATE] – A CG trailer has been released for Guardians and it is oddly awesome. You’ll see what I mean below.
