The Hobbit: Armies Of The Third Age Clears One Million Users
It looks like quite a few gamers have inlisted in The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age, as co-publishers Kabam and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announce that the web-based strategy game has cleared the one million player mark after just a few weeks on the market.
Armies of the Third Age is Kabam's latest free-to-play strategy game, this one available through Facebook and similar online gaming portals. Kabam announced the game was in development last fall and, in late March, finally released it upon the masses. It cleared 250,000 users in a single day and, since then, the audience has grown to more than a million.
“We're elated that fans of The Hobbit have responded so enthusiastically to The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age and we're incredibly proud of how the game has performed in such a short time,” said Andrew Sheppard, president of Kabam Studios.
In Armies of the Third Age, players get to take on the role of legendary Middle-earth heroes like Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield or Radagast. You're put in charge of leading an army of elves, dwarves or orcs into battle, a strategic affair that requires the player to pay attention to the whole battlefield in order to be victorious. Players can even band together with their online friends to form alliances, further strengthening their performance in-game.
