The Hobbit came out on Blu-ray and DVD this week, but if you can't get enough of J.R.R. Tolkien's world you can always go online. Kabam and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have released the free-to-play browser game The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age.
Gamers lead an army of Orcs, Dwarves, or Elves as they attempt to build their own kingdom in Middle Earth. The Hobbit staples Thorin, Gandalf, and Legolas are among the heroes that can be controlled in this tactical title.
"We're eager to bring The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age to the millions of Middle Earth fans who engage online," said Greg Ballard, who's the Senior VP of Digital Games, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "The Facebook and browser-based portals are key locations where The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film fans can regularly engage with middle Earth in a shared interactive environment."
Along with its presence on Facebook, The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age is available on the Google Chrome Store and Kabam.com.
