Guardians of Middle-Earth was just announced on Wednesday, but last night GameTrailers TV had the exclusive first trailer for it. This Lord of the Rings MOBA will appear on the PS3 and 360 this Fall as a downloadable title, and features over 20 characters from the Lord of the Rings universe. The trailer is pure CG and simply sets up the 5v5 battle format, but that does not mean it is low on thrills. Gandalf, Legolas, Thráin, and possibly Aragorn and Galadriel do battle against the Witch King, Gollum, an Uruk Hai, and two others, with spectacular results. Near the end, a new challenger approaches that should change the face of battle, but the game's logo appears before we see how this ends. Like I said, this trailer is pure CG so there is no actual gameplay, but Guardians of Middle-Earth still looks interesting. We just have to see how this MOBA take on the Lord of the Rings universe plays out for the console crowd.
