Mirkwood map skin now available as well.
The latest addition to Guardians of Middle Earth line up of heroes and villains is the devious and powerful spider Unglob, one of the hatchlings of the evil spirit Ungoliant who fans will recognize from the books.
Unglob is a striker class villain who grows increasingly powerful as the game progresses. She relies on brute strength and quick strikes to down her foes rather than stealth. Her abilities include releasing a web that blinds and pulls enemies closer, her hunger for prey grants her passive bonus movement speed, and her ultimate bite packs quite a welly as it stuns, damages and lifesteals a unit for significant amount of damage. Warner Bros has also released a video detailing her abilities. Check it out below.
In addition to the character, the three-lane map is now available with the Mirkwood skin which transforms the map into the dark and foreboding jungle.
Guardians of Middle-Earth is a humble attempt by the developers to bring the widely successful MOBA genre to console, and they’ve succeeded to an extent albeit with toning down the scale and complexity associated with the genre. Read our full review of the game over here.
