Guardians of Middle-earth is a MOBA, ok? That's a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena, a genre that's been rather popular on the PC for quite some time. And now Gotham City Impostors and FEAR dev Monolith is bringing the MOBA to consoles with GoM-e, and today sees the first gameplay trailer for the game.

Guardians of Middle-earth pits the forces of good and evil against one another in Tolkien's expansive fantasy universe, which means Gandalf, Legolas, Galadriel and co. will face off against the likes of the dark lord Sauron, Gollum, the Witch-King et al.

In the gameplay video, you'll see the characters' range of lore-based abilities, including Sauron's ability to someone the Balrog or Gandalf's summoning of his great eagle. Check out the vid below, then look out for the game on XBLA in autumn 2012 for 1200 Microsoft Points. Click here to read our Guardians of Middle-earth preview.

Why is Gimli taller than the human warriors? I thought they're called dwarfs for a reason

"Sauron's ability to someone the Balrog"

Want to rectify that?

While this game does look pretty decent, I think I'll just stick to HoN on PC. This game only has 16 heroes :/

This will probably be the best of the latter for LotR games.

I love Warner Bros. Games publisher why because their recent titles is good and fantastic like Batman: Arkham City, FEAR 3, The Witcher 2 (they published it in US version while Namco Bandai Games published it in Europe version), Lollipop Chainsaw, LEGO Batman 2, LEGO Harry Potter Year 5-7, Lord of the Rings: War in the North and some more their games so much postive reviews. Cannot wait this one, LEGO LotR, next Batman title (my believe it will be).

Keep going WB Games. Well done for releases lots of good games. WB Games is one of best publishers out there today. :):)

PS OP: The eagles are aren't the property of Gandalf. They're allies, not pets.

Also, I heard about a new LOTR game and got excited. I watch this video and it makes me want to puke. MOBAs are awful and this is no exception, even with the awesome lore of LOTR.

Looks similar to LoL, but less fun and less creative. I will buy it when it's deal of the week 2 months after release!
