LEGO The Hobbit released date announced

Warner Bros. has announced that LEGO The Hobbit will be released on April 8.

The fantasy adventure, based on Peter Jackson’s films The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug, will be released for multiple platforms, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii U.

As expected, the game follows the exploits of Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Wizard and his Dwarf companions as they travel across Middle-Earth, battling goblins, orcs and other fantasy-inspired creatures from the world of J.R.R. Tolkien.

The Hobbit is in development at Traveller’s Tales and follows on from the LEGO adaptation of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, again based on films directed by Jackson.
