Guardians of Middle-earth now has some The Hobbit DLC available to purchase from the Xbox Live Marketplace, with Bilbo Baggins and Bert the Troll both available as downloadable characters.

Bilbo's classified as a Striker character with his sword Sting, while Bert lugs barrels around and chucks them about. He's a tactician apparently. Right. The Hobbit Selection also sees a free map update that adds The Shire.

You can grab both Bilbo and Bert now for 160 Microsoft Points each, whereas The Shire map is available to download for free. You can grab all of this and more with the Guardians of Middle-earth Season Pass for 1200 MSP.

Bilbo sounds like Dick Van Dyke.

Gor blimey murry poppens. It's a troll wots coming at me, I says.

I'm sure there's a few English actors out there that could have done the voice.

@1 Game is good, matchmaking however can be completely shit seeing as its p2p. When you have a lag free game with friends its amazing though, i love the game and i hope that the patch will improve matchmaking.
Trial gives you 120 mins so you can try out the online and everything

This dlc came out like friday last week though, normally trailers arrive before releasing to build the hype or atleast thats how it used to work

#3 cheers I will give the trial a spin. I really liked what these guys did in Gotham City Imposters but again the most important thing (online MP) was a bit hit and miss.

I enjoy the game very much, only flaw is the sometimes laggy matchmaking. Definitely worth picking up imo.

I play with a full crew of five on weekends sometimes, buddies I grew up playing Dota, and other Mobas, we're insanely good at Awesomenauts, they will patch up GoME on PS3 version prior to 360, there is a big download you have to get I think it has the Shire map and fixes the lag some, the Elite battlegrounds matches are my favorite, no time limit, makes farming the 20 guardians kills achievo plausible, unlike buying items in most Mobas you build a loadout that activates over time, overall, very fun, highly suggest you play with a full crew, average que time is around 2-3 mins as well.

Tried the demo and it kinda sucked. Never liked these games too much, but this one was the worst of few I played. Probably, because it does not feel good playing on controller.
