Galadriel, the queen of the Elves who dwells in the forest realm of Lothlórien, is an Enchanter in Guardians of Middle-earth. She plays like a ranged healer, and every time she uses one of her special abilities, she gains some health. Uglúk is an Uruk-hai warrior, a tall, brutish beast who serves the evil wizard Saruman. As a tank-like fighter, he can dish out a lot of damage with his sword and whip, and take a lot of punishment as well. The final game will offer more than 20 different playable Guardians, including Gandalf and Gollum.

Guardians of Middle-earth is due out this fall on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
