Guardians of Middle-Earth brings MOBAs to consoles

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Ever since the release of Defense of the Ancients, the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre has spread like wildfire and established itself firmly in the hearts and minds of gamers everywhere. Now, we've got titles like League of Legends, Wrath of Heroes, Heroes of Newerth… you get the idea. Until recently, however, this genre has purely been a PC affair. 

Not anymore. 

Guardians of Middle-Earth for Xbox 360 and PS3 (Monolith, Warner Bros., LOTR, The Hobbit)

Today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that their upcoming MOBA, Guardians of Middle Earth, will be a console exclusive, debuting on both the Xbox LIVE Arcade that the PlayStation Network. Featuring ties to the upcoming movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the game will pit ten players against one another in teams of five, allowing them to do battle with up to twenty guardians, including Gandalf, Gollum, Thrain, and Sauron. 

So, yeah. If you ever wanted to see who'd win between Gandalf the Grey and Sauron, now you can find out.

All in all, it's looking like it'll be a pretty standard MOBA, aside from the fact that it'll be on a console, including a leaderboard system and voice chat.  As The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theatres, the developers plan to release several new guardians coinciding with the film.

Guardians of Middle Earth is being developed by Monolith Productions and will be going live in October 2012.
