Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Productions today announce a new Guardian addition to Guardians of Middle-earth with Barrow-wight Lord, who will be available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network.
Twisted by corruption even in death, the Barrow-wight Lord is a powerful remnant of a stalwart line of Men, banished to the Barrow-downs. While living, his power was great, but in death he bears greater power with little resemblance to his original human form.
Barrow-wight Lord joins the epic character roster in Guardians of Middle-earth, with Season Pass holders having free access to him as the last Guardian as part of the pass; additional purchasable content is set to be released as well.
In Guardians of Middle-earth, gamers team up as the most powerful heroes from the greatest fantasy epic of all time, bringing up to 10 players together in a competitive multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game. Featuring select characters from the film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the game allows players to develop and master more than 20 iconic characters. Play as Gandalf, Gollum, Legolas, Sauron and more, forming memorable and unlikely alliances with and against friends. Gamers will have the ability to connect with other players via an in-game voice communication system, as well as access to a comprehensive online stat and leader board system where they can track friends’ victories and defeats, and more. Now available at select retail stores and via download for Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 and PlayStation Network.
