'Guardians of Middle-earth' summons Legolas and the Witch-king into the fray

"Guardians of Middle-earth" summons Legolas and the Witch-king into battle.

Guardians of Middle-earth, Monolith Productions' multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) with elements based on Peter Jackson's on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, received another battle profile vignette today profiling sharpshooting Elf Legolas and the deadly Witch-king.

The video posted below demonstrates Legolas' prowess in battle, including the ability to disappear into surrounding foliage, and the Silven Agility skill, allowing him to dart quickly behind foes for a swift kill. The Witch-king, the deadliest servant of Middle-earth's most evil resident, can raise his enemies from the dead to fight on his side and prevent opponents from fleeing a confrontation.

Players can also step into the shoes of newly-debuted characters Arathorn, father of king-to-be Aragorn, and Runsig, one of the Witch-king's more fearsome underlings. Both are playable on the floor at Gamescom this week.

Guardians of Middle-earth will release this fall on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
