Guardians of Middle-earth set for Dec. 5 XBLA release, new character art revealed

Guardians of Middle-earth, the multiplayer online battle arena designed for consoles, will release on Dec. 5 for Xbox 360, Monolith Productions announced today in a press release.

The XBLA version will cost 1,200 Microsoft points. Monolith had previously announced a Dec. 4 PlayStation 3 release for $14.99. Guardians of Middle-earth will also have a season pass available for an additional $14.99, providing access to future DLC including new characters, map skins and a new gameplay mode. A $29.99 retail bundle, which includes Microsoft and PlayStation cards equal in value to the season pass, will be available on Dec. 4 at "retail stores across North America," according to the press release.
