There are three different playable races in The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age. Each race has their own unique style, structures and troops. Depending on which race you choose, you will have certain advantages, or disadvantages, in the online strategy game.
At the start of your journey, you will find yourself with a city of your own. You must build this small village from the ground up and create an empire. However, that is much easier said than done. To start building your empire, you will first need resources. Collect these resources but be wary – you are not the only one in the online fantasy world.
Once you have collected enough resources to begin building, you must build new structures which will allow you to research new and powerful technologies, train units and further advance the growth of your empire.
In The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age, you will also have the chance to control some of the mightiest heroes of Middle-earth, including Gandalf, Legolas and Thorin Oakenshield. These characters will lead your armies into combat in which you will have to take control and outwit your enemies to come out victorious.
It is difficult to survive the hostile world of Middle-earth alone and that is why there is also an extensive alliance system in this free-to-play game. Ally with thousands of other players from around the world and wage war on your enemies!
