The lights are on
Warner Interactive announced that Lego the Hobbit was in development late last month, and now they've released a trailer packed with in-game footage. Check it out to see footage of trolls, goblins, orcs, and, of course, a few pigs.
Lego the Hobbit uses audio from Peter Jackson's films, including the voice acting from the films' cast. They used the same technique to great effect in last year's Lego Lord of the Rings. While The Hobbit will be a trilogy in theaters, however, the Lego game will only cover the events from the first two films, including the recently released The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Look for Lego the Hobbit on PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, 3DS, and Vita in 2014.

wondering if there will be a third game in the Lego LOTR's universe to finish the Hobbit's story line or maybe a complete saga game like they did for the Star Wars Films?
