Lego Lord of the Rings and Lego The Hobbit have left the Gray Havens and are not out there to obtain from PC and console marketplaces.
The video games disappeared from Steam, PlayStation and Xbox shops on or round 1st January – suggesting some sort of licensing restriction ran out on the ent of final yr.
It is a disgrace, as a result of Lego Lord of the Rings specifically is good – a love letter to Center-earth and Peter Jackson’s authentic film trilogy. It stays certainly one of Lego’s greatest open worlds.
And Lego Hobbit was fairly nice, too – it included mining and crafting gameplay I have never seen in one other Lego sport since, and supplied up but extra of Center-earth to discover. But it surely was left incomplete – the ultimate movie in The Hobbit’s trilogy deliberate as DLC that inexplicably by no means noticed gentle of day. A weird and irritating choice for followers left with solely two thirds of the story.
Lego Lord of the Rings was the primary Lego sport to incorporate voice strains taken from the films themselves, alongside its rating – which can be the reason for licensing points.
We have requested writer Warner Bros. what’s up – and whether or not both will make it there and again once more.
