LEGO The Hobbit is based on the first two films of The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.
In LEGO The Hobbit, kids and families can take on the form of their favorite Hobbit characters, including Bilbo, Gandalf, and all of the Dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori. Each has his own special ability. For instance, Bombur can be used as a trampoline that enables his companions to "belly-bounce" out of danger.
“We are thrilled to depict the characters and environments of Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth in LEGO form with the LEGO The Hobbit videogame,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “Our family-friendly take on these thrilling adventures will have kids and parents playing and laughing together as they build and explore in LEGO Middle-earth.”
Players visit key locations from the films, including Bag End, Bilbo's Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton, trek through the High Pass over The Misty Mountains, and explore the depths of Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell. Along the way, players solve puzzles, partake in Treasure Quests and battle with Orcs, Trolls and fouler things. They can mine for gems, discover loot from enemies, craft magical items, and build new LEGO structures.
