LEGO Hobbit Videogame to get There & Back Again DLC 

71OoYlP6jpL._SL1500_

As briefly mentioned in yesterdays mammoth London Toy Fair report the upcoming LEGO videogame based on The Hobbit films and LEGO toy line will be getting some fairly hefty DLC later in the year. LEGO The Hobbit videogame was revealed just before Christmas with an expected release date of April, oddly it will only focus on events and characters from the first two Hobbit films – An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. The third film in the trilogy – There and Back Again will be released this Christmas. The DLC revealed at the Toy Fair is expected to become available around the time of the third film and is expected to conclude the adventure by adding additional playable content focused on the final film.

This is fairly new territory for TT Games and the LEGO Videogames on a whole, although recent title have received weapons, spells and character DLC packs, addition of story element hasn’t been done before. Traditionally TT Games always release a LEGO title during the holiday season, however this year both The LEGO Movie Videogame and LEGO The Hobbit Videogame will both have launched before the Summer. So if will this DLC be in place of a full LEGO Videogame for Christmas or is there an unknown LEGO Videogame from TT Games still to be announced?

LEGO The Hobbit Videogame will launch across all major platforms this Spring. You can pre-order a copy today from Amazon be clicking these links – PlayStation 3PlayStation 4PlayStation VitaXbox 360Xbox OnePC DVDWii UNintendo 3DS

Hi I'm Adam, editor here at the good ship Brick Fanatics. I've been a fan of gaming and LEGO for many years. So you can imagine my delight when the two joined forces. First LEGO set I ever owned was the LEGO King's Castle and I'm currently loving The LEGO Movie sets.

    Sounds good, I bet you are looking forward to playing it?

      I am actually, LOTR was hated by a fair few people but I really enjoyed it.

      • Niktendo

        I enjoyed LOTR, but I prefer the other more games. The open world is LOTR was a bit dull and I wasn’t compelled to go round and find everything.

    Surely it would have been just as easy to wait until fall/winter to release it? Now it just seems like they want more money because we’ll pay for the game and then extra for the DLC.

    • Adam

      Exactly seems very daft my only reasoning about it is LEGO are keeping the ‘holiday’ release window open for the Minifigures Online game. But Warner release so few games I’m sure extra money charged for the DLC is certainly a factor.

    The DLC hasn’t officially been announced for any platform but considering the Wii U’s poor performance and WB Games pulling DLC from their other titles I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    Hope this dlc will be or update or free because if they’re looking foward to gain more money putting story dlc in they games is gonna be a shot in the dark
