The time has come to write our first official blog post for LEGO® The Hobbit and here we are! The game is starting to come together brilliantly as we have been busy little Hobbits over the past year...
It’s a real privilege to tell the tale of The Hobbit, and since LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™ we have all been very eager to return to Middle-earth and create another fun LEGO adventure. Armed with the amazing LEGO The Lord of the Rings development team, we have embarked on a new journey to tell the story of Bilbo and his adventures alongside Thorin Oakenshield and Company.
Fans will of course get to play as every member of Thorin’s Company, each with their own unique abilities, as they adventure through the open world of LEGO Middle-earth, ultimately to the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor. Since this is LEGO The Hobbit we naturally have lots of other tricks up our sleeve to entice and “WOW” you all every step of the way. After all, what’s a LEGO disco between friends right? (Players of LEGO LOTR get the joke :-) ).
Our new buddy system also allows Hobbits and Dwarves to combine abilities to solve puzzles, defeat enemies and work as a team to reach the fabled mountains deep and caverns old! I don’t want to give too much away and spoil all the surprises, so I will keep you guys updated on new features as they go live in the game.
Oh and one last thing, how cool would it be if you could customise your own horse, Warg or pony to ride around Middle-earth? …..Just saying :-)
