Fight as your favorite characters from The Lord of the Rings in Guardians of Middle-Earth, the moba mmorpg developed by Zombie Studios. Players choose from 36 iconic characters as they take up arms in epic 5 versus 5 combat. Set in Tolkien's magical setting of Middle-Earth's Third Age, players can create the most unlikely of alliances depending upon the guardians that they choose.
Guardians of Middle-Earth features intense multiplayer online battle arena (moba) action in several gameplay modes. This game features five modes: co-op, 5v5, survival, practice, and training. Training features tutorials that guide you step by step into learning the game. Practice mode allows you to hone your skills offline against AI bots. Survival features a team of five players facing endless waves of enemies that are spawned one wave at a time and only ends when all players are dead. Co-op has a thirty minute time limit where a team of five players faces five guardians controlled by the computer. The truest test comes in 5v5 where two teams of players square off against each other with a thirty-five minute time limit. Co-op and 5v5 can also end when enough points are scored by one time or a team's base is destroyed. If there's not enough players found for co-op or 5v5, then empty player slots will be filled in with AI bots to get the action started.
There are two maps for Guardians of Middle-Earth. One is a three lane map to allow for tactical battles and a single lane map for intense back-and-forth battles. Each team has their own base and towers for defense. In addition, soldiers spawn to rush along pre-determined lanes to attack the enemy's towers. When a player's guardian reaches level six, they can upgrade the towers and soldiers into more powerful versions such as mounted orcs or cave trolls. Shrines serve as strategic capture points that provide bonuses. Brush conceal guardians as long as they do not attack or use an ability, which comes in handy if you need to hide to wait for an ability to finish its cooldown. Various creatures can be found on the battleground and will provide buffs if they are conquered. The most powerful creatures require an entire team of guardians to defeat it, but the reward is so much greater.
The core of Guardians of Middle-Earth are the guardians themselves. Each guardian is a unique character from the works of Tolkien, such as Gandalf, Legolas, Gollum, and even Sauron. Each guardian has their own unique abilities and can be leveled up to make them more powerful. There are five different classes of guardian, each with their own strengths and weaknesses: tactician, enchanter, defender, warrior, and striker. Each guardian has four unique abilities that can be upgraded over time. A player has a small set of guardians available to them when they first begin playing. They can then purchase additional guardians by using in-game currency that they earn through playing matches. Guardians can also be enhanced by the gear that they use.
Guardians of Middle-Earth is a moba-style mmo that immerses the player into Tolkien's most famous creation. Players can easily engage in differing gameplay modes while settling on a strategy by using the game's voice communication. Players can track their victories and defeats through stat and leaderboard systems. Choose your guardians and fight as a shadow grows over Middle-Earth.
