I like Lego. I like The Hobbit. I love video games. Therefore Lego the Hobbit Video Game is, for me, one of the crowning achievements of human civilization. And to make my day even more magical and fun-filled, it gives me great pleasure to tell you all that three new downloadable content packs are now available for both Playstation 4 and Xbox Live.
Here're the details:
The Big Little Character Pack - Strike a little fear and terror into the hearts of your foes with Baby Smaug, or enjoy a cameo appearance of Baby Gimli from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. The LEGO big figure Snow Troll is sure to shake things up and you’ll also have the chance to play as Bandobras ”Bullroarer” Took or a Stone Dwarf from Erebor.
The Side Quest Character Pack - Take command of a LEGO big figures River Troll or Girion, the last Lord of Dale. The noble Elk will offer you transport wherever you desire, or you can charge into battle with the fearless Dwarf soldier. Have you ever wondered what a Wizard does on his day off? Enjoy the simpler pleasures of life with Saruman (Day Off).
The Battle Pack - Destroy Morgul LEGO with the Shadow Sword, equip yourself with Jeweled Mithril Armor of the finest Dwarven craftsmanship, or activate the Light Orb Shield for the ultimate protection. The Axe Guitar, Orc Cleaver and Orc Bow will make short work of your opponents, while a pair of Lake-town Boots and Smaugs Feet will keep you adventuring in style! The Buddy-up Gloves allow you to smash through Buddy-up cracks solo, while Smaug’s Headdress and the Dwarf King Wig will ensure your presence is majestic at all times.
I now know what I'll be doing this weekend. Here I come Middle Earth!
