If you like Lord of the Rings but aren’t such a big fan of “travelling to Mount Doom” and are more a fan of “twatting streams of continually spawning monsters in the face while pushing your own stream of continually spawning monsters towards an enemy base”, then rejoice! Warner Bros’ Lord of the Rings-themed MOBA, Guardians of Middle Earth has hit Steam. With seven DLC packs.
The base game contains three game modes across six maps (including those that were DLC on console, like Survival mode), and a range of 36 playable Guardians which can either be acquired through gameplay or bought with in-game currency. The base game will cost you £14.99.
Alternatively, you can buy Guardians of Middle Earth and all the DLC hahahaha at once for hahahahahahahahaha £60.99 HAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh wait they’re serious. £60.99? Really?
We have no review code so I’m unable to tell you what I think of it. I’m fairly eager to try it out, though – I heard mostly good things about the console version, although it did supposedly have some significant netcode issues. Let’s hope those have been fixed for the PC release.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
