The MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre has recently been picking up steam with Dota 2 and Super Monday Night Combat. It looks like now Lord of the Rings is jumping into the fray.
Guardians of Middle Earth is a five-on-five action strategy game featuring noteworthy Lord of the Rings characters like Gandalf, Gollum, Sauron, Legolas, and Gimli, among many others.
The CGI trailer (seen above) shows some intense action between some of the heroes and villains of Tolkein's universe. However, no gameplay is shown.
A release date was not announced but it will be coming to Xbox Live and the Playstation Network this fall.
