Guardians of Middle-earth DLC adds Ring-bearer Frodo Baggins

Lord of the Rings-themed massive online battle arena Guardians of Middle-earth is receiving another add on character today, the Hobbit Frodo Baggins, publisher Warner Bros. has announced.

The character DLC is currently available through the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network for 160 Microsoft Points or $1.99, respectively. In author J.R.R. Tolkiens famous fantasy trilogy, Frodo is the steadfast Hobbit tasked with carrying the One Ring, the most malicious object in all of Middle-earth, back its place of origin to destroy it.

In battle, Frodo can use Sting, a short sword that glows blue when Orcs are near, to hack and slash his way through hordes of enemies. He also appears to use a sort of magical or power-charging ability that surrounds him in bright light. Check out the trailer above for a look at Frodo in action.

Guardians of Middle-earth was released last December for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
