'LEGO The Hobbit' (ALL) Skipping Battle of the Five Armies Content

Following the story of the first two films, LEGO The Hobbit takes players on quests throughout Middle-earth. Join Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, and Thorin Oakenshield and company in their exciting adventures toward the Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor.

LEGO: The Hobbit will be based on the first two films of The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the upcoming The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.

Following the storyline of the first two films, LEGO: The Hobbit will take players on quests throughout Middle-earth, joining Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, and Thorin Oakenshield and Company in their exciting adventures toward the Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor. 

In LEGO: The Hobbit, kids and families will be able to 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 – and quite hilarious – ability: For instance, Bombur can be used as a trampoline that enables his companions “belly-bounce” out of danger!

Players will visit key locations from the films, including Bag End, Bilbo’s Hobbit-hole in Hobbiton, trek through the treacherous High Pass over The Misty Mountains, and explore the depths of Goblin-town, Mirkwood and Rivendell. Along the way, players will solve countless puzzles, partake in Treasure Quests and battle with Orcs, Trolls and fouler things.  They will also be able to mine for gems, discover loot from enemies, and craft powerful magical items or build immense new LEGO structures.

Since LEGO: The Hobbit covers the first two movies, the question whether fans could expect content from Battle of Five Armies, the final movie in the trilogy, had yet to be answered. Until today.

In a recent statement, Warner Bros revealed that there will be no Battle of the Five Armies DLC for LEGO: The Hobbit, nor do they plan on releasing a standalone game to cover the third movie.

"The LEGO The Hobbit videogame gives LEGO and Middle-earth fans a fun, new way to experience the legendary adventures of Bilbo and company as told in the first two films of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy."
