The lights are on
Get your first look at the single-lane map in Monolith's upcoming MOBA-style console game, Guardians of Middle-earth, right here. Producer Bob Roberts explains the action as GI's Adam Biessener tries to hold his own against the dev team in chaotic Dota-alike action.
Developed as an homage to the popular "all-random, all-mid" variant currently sweeping through the League of Legends community, Guardians' single-lane map is all team fights, all the time.
The lack of last-hitting – and money itself – in Guardians of Middle-earth is weird from a MOBA player's standpoint, but the action feels great on a controller and the bedrock strategy of controlling lanes, tower diving, ganking, and more shines through brilliantly.
Guardians of Middle-earth comes out later this year on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

It did look extremely interesting when I first saw it awhile ago... :D
Looks pretty cool actually
i want to play this so bad
I'm usually not that big of a MOBA fan/player but I'll admit this game looks intriguing.
My one question is whether or not we'll be able to play against solely NPC teams outside of the training mode or instead will be forced to play against other human opponents online (I tend to have rather poor luck when matched against human opponents hence my lack of interest in most competitive games).
If we can and if the price point isn't too high, I'll definitely give the game a try.
Looks extremely... average? The idea is good but the game seems like it should of been made 1-2 years ago.
This is probably a coincidence, but I started writing a book with this exact title when I was 9 years old. Of course I stopped writing it because I got bored because I was 9, but man this is weird. This has nothing to do with what I was writing but...weird.
Looks good but going to wait and see more before deciding about it!
Interesting Video good
I can't wait for this.
Just found out what MOBA means. Sounds cool.
