Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have released a funky new trailer for their upcoming video game, LEGO The Hobbit. The game will take players through the events of the first two films of Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Like all of the LEGO-themed video games it looks like it will be fun. I enjoy the humor that included in these games.
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.
LEGO The Hobbit will be available for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC on April 8th. I've included a demo of the game play for you to check out as well.
