LEGO The Hobbit, the Middle-earth inspired next installment in TT Games' Lego adventure game franchise, will launch on April 11th, publisher Warner Bros. announced.

LEGO The Hobbit follows the events of the first two Peter Jackson films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy adventure, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The third and final film, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will be released in theatres Dec. 17, 2014.
Following the storyline of the first two films, LEGO The Hobbit will take players on quests throughout Middle-earth, joining Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey, and Thorin Oakenshield and Company in their exciting adventures toward the Dwarven Kingdom of Erebor.

In LEGO The Hobbit, kids and families will be able to take on the form of their favourite Hobbit characters, including Bilbo, Gandalf, and all of the Dwarves: Thorin, Fíli, Kíli, Óin, Glóin, Dwalin, Balin Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori and Ori. Each has his own special – and quite hilarious – ability: For instance, Bombur can be used as a trampoline that enables his companions “belly-bounce” out of danger!
LEGO The Hobbit is in the works for PC, Mac, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Wii U.

How good is all the LEGO stuff (both games and movies) should I check them out?

Harry Potter lego games are the best IMO. Marvel and DC 2 are good also. Didn't really enjoy LOTR or Pirates.

Will they be including the last instalment later down for free or is it going to be another game?

free? HA! Another game for sure. I love batman legos and star wars is the best.

i really liked lego as a kid - had a bunch of it and used to spend hours making / destroying stuff etc - and i like the films these games are made from but for some reason i just dont like the lego games

Addmittedly i only played the one (one of the starwars ones) but it Just seemed like it was more of a "going thru the motions" of what happened in the film but also while collecting lego pieces

The newer games are better. I got Lego Star Wars to entertain my nephew while babysitting and actually enjoyed it myself much to my surprise.

And Lego Marvel is the best superhero game in years.

I agree, the first Harry potter years 1-4 was easily the best. Its hilarious and has way better lines, humor and action. Even better if you have had a couple of... special brownies.

+1 Star Wars and Marvel Lego games
