Guardians of Middle Earth  



Guardians of Middle Earth trailer sold me on a LoTR MOBA


10:15 AM on 06.01.2012



The MOBA genre has seen a significant rise in popularity over the last few months and with Dota 2 and Blizzard Dota on their way fans of the once niche game will soon have even more options for their 5-on-5 strategy action. Warner Brothers have decided to throw their proverbial hat in the ring with Guardians of Middle Earth based on the Lord of the Rings mythos, and we've got the new trailer in all of it's good vs. evil glory. Sadly, evil's never allowed to come out on top.

Guardians of Middle Earth isn't the first MOBA to grace the console space, but it's still a relatively untouched market and it does come bearing Tolkien's beloved license so I'm sure it'll find its fanbase. After all, I've yet to grow tired of the genre so if ever there was a time to release a licensed entry to the niche, it's probably now, before we're all sick of it.
