Guardians of Middle-earth, the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) featuring characters and locations from Lord of the Rings, is coming to PC via Steam, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced.
Guardians of Middle-earthreleased on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 last December, developed by Monolith. The PC version is developed by Zombie Studios. It's the same gaming experience as on the consoles, but it makes use of some Steam features -- Steamworks matchmaking, Big Picture mode, leaderboards and statistics. While you can still use a controller to play the game, just like the console versions, there are controls for keyboard and mouse.
With the Guardians of Middle-earth PC version, all console DLC will be included. Players will have access to all 36 original Guardians, all earnable through gameplay and in-game currency. There's also three map skins -- The Shire, Goblin-town and Mirkwood -- and the gameplay mode Survival.
