Kabam and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have partnered to co-publish games for mobile devices and the web inspired by Peter Jackson's The Hobbit Trilogy.
Kabam will develop and operate two free-to-play multiplayer strategy games, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth for mobile devices and The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age for web browsers, both launching in Autumn 2012.
Players can sign up to take part in the upcoming beta for The Hobbit:Armies of the Third Age at www.kabam.com/the-hobbit-armies.
The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth challenges players to build and manage their own kingdom in Middle-earth, joining with other players to explore and engage in epic war.
The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age is a browser-based game that puts gamers at the helm of an army of Elves, Dwarves or Orcs, controlling heroes including Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, in fast-paced strategic combat, with the fate of Middle-earth hanging in the balance.
