Hobbit fever couldn't be any higher than it is right now…

While we wait for the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in theaters on December 14th, Warner Bros. and Monolith Productions will keep us busy with their battle-heavy MOBA game Lord of the Rings: Guardians of Middle-Earth.  The multiplayer action/strategy game will officially arrive on PlayStation Network on December 4th, with a release to follow on Xbox 360 "fall 2012".

The game will be released in two formats.  People will be able to buy the game digitally for $15 (1200 Microsoft points) on release day, or they can buy a retail edition for $24.99, featuring the inclusion of a Season Pass for downloadable content, as well as additional goodies.  The DLC hasn't been given a physical date as of yet, but we should know more about what will be announced very soon.
