Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Kabam have joined forces to launch the free-to-play browser title The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age. Now available on Facebook as well as other web portals, Armies of the Third Age can unveil the experiences of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit film trilogy to millions of internet users for free. Players can expect face-paced tactical combat by controlling groups of elves, dwarves, or orcs in massive battles over Middle-Earth.
Sean Ryan, Director of Games Partnerships – Facebook, had the following to add:
The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age from Kabam and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is a great example of the type of high quality games being built on Facebook. Kabam’s first strategy game Kingdoms of Camelot launched on Facebook in 2009 and became a major franchise, and we’re excited to see Kabam build their latest game on Facebook. As the Facebook games ecosystem grows, we look forward to seeing more highly engaging experiences from Kabam.
