Guardians of Middle-earth brings MOBA to XBLA and PSN

Monolith Productions has one of the most varied histories in video game development. The studio first cut its teeth on first-person shooters, finding a cult hit in the popular No One Lives Forever series. Then, it was a vast experiment with The Matrix Online , before coming back to shooters with the Fear and Condemned series of games. And now, the company’s trying to reinvent itself yet again with two licensed downloadable titles for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment: first Gotham City Imposters from earlier this year, and now Guardians of Middle-earth . Guardians of Middle-earth is a weird one. It’s a licensed Lord of The Rings title, starring characters from Tolkien’s series. It’s a MOBA game, similar to League of Legends or DOTA 2 , featuring Tolkien’s characters fighting it out across a battlefield full of AI-controlled troops. And it’s a complicated, deep online multiplayer title, designed for competitive play. “What’s so weird about that?” you ask? It’s being developed only for consoles.
