The Hobbit Kingdoms of Middle-earth

The first game of what's likely to be far too many surrounding the upcoming film adaptation of The Hobbit is here ... and it's on your phone (or your tablet). Hardcore social game maker Kabam has released The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth to iOS and Android devices for free. In this take on Kabam's tried-and-true formula, players align with either the Dwarves or the Elves.
Then, it's time to build up your kingdom and its armies in order to forge alliances with friends and crush enemies. At first glance, Kingdoms of Middle-earth doesn't look terribly different from Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North. Aside from new units, environments and the inclusion of hero characters from the upcoming film featured in these screen shots, the game actually looks quite similar.

That said, the trailer below for Kingdoms of Middle-earth looks quite exciting. This game is the first of two from Kabam that will be set around The Hobbit, so it would be worth your time just to see how the first game studio to release such a game handles the brand. Well, that and to see Gollum--everyone loves that guy.
