Hobbit Themed DLC for Guardians of Middle-earth

Posted on December 19, 2012 AT 02:38pm

Some new DLC is now available for The Guardians of Middle-earth on Xbox 360 and PS3. With the release of the new movie The Hobbit, a little hobbit-esque content seems appropriate for this popular, Tolkien-based MOBA. The DLC pack will add two new characters.

Character information from the press release:

Thorin’s Bio:

After being driven to exile with the rest of the surviving Dwarves of Erebor, Thorin, son of Thráin, leads the Company of Dwarves who are determined to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the dragon Smaug. He became the King in Exile of Durin’s Folk after Thráin died, but Thorin proved himself battleworthy when he first led a Dwarven army into Azanulibizar, beneath the East-gate of Moria. He would later take up a tree branch in battle to defend himself, earning the moniker “Oakenshield”.

Gameplay Abilities:

  • Wrath: Increase movement and attack speeds
  • Revenge: Melee attack causing ability and true damage, can deal a critical hit
  • Oakenshield: Creates a shield and reduces enemy attack speed
  • Heart of the Mountain: Increases critical hit chance


  • Warrior
Great Goblin’s Bio:
An exceptionally powerful leader, the Great Goblin rules over the denizens of Goblin-town, located deep within the Misty Mountains under High Pass. His rule came to an abrupt end when he was slain by Gandalf with the infamous Elven sword, Glamdring. As a protector of the Goblins, he’s tenacious in battle, quick in wit, and powerful by nature. Gameplay Abilities:

  • Dizzying Smash: Area attack that deals damage and lowers resistances
  • Ramming Oppression: Target area attack with damage
  • Ancestral Will: Restore health and become immune to damage for a brief time
  • Goblin Insult: Leap attack with knock-up, damage and taunt


  • Defender
