Guardians of Middle-earth is a fantasy video game developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The setting of the game is Middle-earth, derived from The Lord of the Rings series, with various tie-ins to the film series of the same name. Guardians of Middle-earth was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles on December 4, 2012 via the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade respectively. A retail package is also released, which includes a download voucher for the game as well as a "Season Pass" for future downloadable content.
Guardians of Middle-earth incorporates the standard elements of a typical MOBA game, with a strong emphasis upon team coordination. Up to ten players may split into two teams of five and from a pool of twenty guardians from The Lord of the Rings franchise, including Gandalf and Sauron and coordinate to win matches by destroying the opposing team's base. Unlike most other MOBA titles, Guardians of Middle-earth emphasizes home console, rather than desktop, gameplay, in order to gain a "cinematic" experience.
