Warner Bros. is bringing Guardians of Middle-Earth from consoles to the PC.
In 2012 Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released Guardians of Middle-earth, a Tolkien-themed MOBA, for PS3 and Xbox 360. The game performed decently, earning positive critical feedback and gathering fans. Today however, the publisher, in association with developers at Monolith Studios and Zombie Studios is happy to announce that it will be bringing Guardians of Middle-earth to PCs this
month on August 29th.
Enter the lands of Middle-Earth in Guardians of Middle-Earth, a MOBA based in the magical lands of J.R.R. Tolkien.
The PC edition of the game will include all 36 of the game's titular Guardian characters, which can be unlocked through gameplay and the spending of in-game credits. It will also feature multiple gameplay modes including player versus player, player versus AI and Survival which, previously, had been available as DLC for the console game.
The PC version will be released in two editions with different price points and perks depending on which one players purchase. The base game will cost $19.99 and will immediately unlock the Guardians Gandalf, Galadriel, Thrain, Gollum, Hildifons and Legolas for play. The Mithril Edition, which will cost $79.99 will come with all Guardians unlocked along with their alternative skins. It will also come packaged with the Mithril Guardian Relic and a buddy key. Players interested in alternative Guardian skins that don't want to buy the Mithril Edition can purchase class based skin packages for $14.99 each. Players who have previously purchased Guardians of Middle-Earth on the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live will be eligible for a PC download code for the base game.
