Warner Bros. Games has revealed Traveller’s Tales next installment into the LEGO franchise will be LEGO: The Hobbit. Considering The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug recently released in theaters, it makes sense for WB to announce the game this week. Of course it’s never a shock to hear a new LEGO game is coming and it’s always usually related to one of the bigger movie franchises going at the time, which just happens to be The Hobbit right now.
Warner Bros. described the game as follows:
LEGO The Hobbit sends players of all ages on an unforgettable interactive journey through the first two films in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. 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.
