A game version of Lego The Hobbit has now moved from the land of rumor, as it has been officially confirmed by Warner Bros Entertainment.
This installment in the Lego LOTR series will be based on the first two films in the Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: Desolation Of Smaug.
As it will be following the storyline of both of those films, players will be playing as various familiar faces which includes Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey and Thorin Oakenshield.
These are obviously not the only characters appearing in Lego The Hobbit, as the full list of characters consists of Bilbo, Gandalf, Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori.
Each character has a unique special ability, for example, Bombur can let other characters use his stomach as a trampoline. I must have missed that scene, then.
There have also been some confirmed locations for the game, which are Bag End, Bilbo’s Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton, the High Pass over the Misty Mountains, Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell.
For those of you wondering the Lego The Hobbit game will be released on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Vita, Wii U, 3DS, PC and Mac in spring 2014.
