On December 5th, Guardians of Middle-earth will be available worldwide via download for 1200 Microsoft Points on the Xbox LIVE Arcade. It has also been confirmed that Guardians of Middle-earth will be available on the PlayStation Network December 4th for $14.99/£11.99. As we mentioned previously, there is a separate Season Pass available that offers discounted pricing to additional future content. These include the all important Guardian characters, map skins and play modes. The Season Pass will be available for an additional 1200 Microsoft Points on XBLA or $14.99/£11.99 on the PSN. Physical copies of the game will also be available at gaming retailers, and this bundle will feature both the game and the Season Pass for $29.99/£24.99.

With more than 20 characters and 2 maps available at launch, Warner Bros. and Monolith hope that this game will lure those playing League of Legends and Dota2 to the familiarity of the Lord of the Rings franchise. And expect tie-ins with the new movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey coming out soon as well.
