Guardians of Middle-Earth coming to XBLA on December 5

When Monolith and Warner Bros announced the release plans for Guardians of Middle-Earth, it was oddly vague about Xbox Live Arcade. The game was committed to December 4 on PlayStation Network, and "fall" on XBLA. The developer has now confirmed the game will hit XBLA December 5, as per usual for multiplatform digital releases.

As previously reported, the game will cost $14.99 digitally, or $29.99 at retail with a Season Pass included. DLC plans include new maps, a bonus gameplay mode, and various new characters. Some of the new ones will tie into the upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey film, so Tolkien fans may want to take note.
