Guardians of Middle-Earth – Lord of the Rings MOBA announced for PC

[Game website] Initially just launching for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Guardians of Middle-Earth will be released for the PC system on 29th August through the Steam platform. A MOBA based on the lore of The Lord of the Rings, all 36 characters from the console version will be ready at launch.


I am pretty stoked about the MOBA market, with Infinite Crisis quite an enjoyable game, with the Marvel MOBA still in development and of course, my daily sessions in League of Legends. Will there be other famous franchises developed in the MOBA as well? We shall see.
