As it turns out, Fast & Furious 6: The Game is not the only Kabam-developed movie tie-in game that has just received an update. The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth, which was developed by Kabam based on “The Hobbit” film trilogy, has also received an update.

Pushing the top grossing freemium combat strategy game to version 7.0, the latest update to The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth introduces a new Campaign mode.

Accessible via the new Campaign tab in the Quest menu, the new Campaign mode challenges you to get rid of the Pale Orc, Great Goblin, and other pernicious presences throughout Middle-Earth.

  • Look out for special Sage’s Tower events where you can get in-game items and other prizes
  • Chinese simplified and traditional support!
