Guardians of Middle-Earth, the upcoming Lord of the Rings-themed MOBA from Monolith, will feature some of the series’ most iconic characters as playable characters. The Battle Profile series will show the pros and cons of each guardian, and they’re starting off with two heavy hitters. In the villian’s corner is Gollum, the hobbit corrupted by the powers of his “precious” ring. He’s a vicious and powerful melee fighter, but his frail body makes him easy to defeat. Stealth and sneak attacks will be key when controlling this character. Fighting on the hero’s side is Gandalf, color not specified. He’s an enchanter, so he has both devastating ranged spells for enemies and magical abilities to protect his team. Call him a mage, and he’ll bash you with his staff. Guardians of Middle-Earth will be available this fall.
