LEGO The Hobbit is a video game that was released on the 8th of April, 2014 (along with the Blu-Ray release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) in North America and on the 11th of April, 2014 in other territories. It was released on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PS3, PS4, 3DS, Vita, Mac and PC.
The game is set around the first two films of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. The Battle of the Five Armies storyline was announced by WB at the official press release to be releasing as DLC content following the release of the movie, but WB later shelved the content altogether, stating on Gamespot, on March 16th, 2015, that there would be no adaptions created for the game.
Playable characters include Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, alongside all of the dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori. Warner Bros. adds that each dwarf will have his own unique ability, mentioning that Bombur can use his belly as a trampoline.
Locations visited will include Bag End, Hobbiton, The Misty Mountains, Goblin-town, Mirkwood, Lake-Town, Dol Guldur, Rivendell and The Lonely Mountain.
Players “will also be able to mine for gems, discover loot from enemies, and craft powerful magical items or build immense new LEGO structures,” according to the game’s press release, suggesting that Minecraft-esque elements could make their way into the next LEGO adventure.
