All things Hobbit-related are certainly heating up, and we’ve got a new video from the upcoming MOGA title, Guardians of Middle-earth to celebrate. Today’s video is a battle profile for the Silvan elf, Haldir, who can travel among the trees quickly and with great stealth, as well as Lugbol, a dark entity who channels his power by searing strikes of fire and lightning. In addition to this video, we’ve also got word of a contest called “Gandalfs of Middle-earth” taht you can enter on Facebook. If dressing up as the bearded wizrobe is your thing, well…this link is for you. Here’s a nibble on what this game is about:
In Guardians of Middle-earth, gamers team up as the most powerful heroes from the greatest fantasy epic of all time, bringing up to 10 players together in a competitive multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game.
