PAX Prime 2012: The Guardians of Middle-earth Retrospective
At Monolith, we look forward to the excitement that PAX Prime brings to Seattle every year. As attendees began to flood the Washington State Convention Center, the Guardians of Middle-earth booth crowded with fans to get hands-on game time (with the most unlocked characters to date) as well as the Gandalf the Grey hat giveaway, which were seen throughout PAX and the surrounding Seattle-area.
During the Labor Day weekend, attendees who signed up for the Guardians of Middle-earth tournament competed to win the coveted Guardians of Middle-earth ASTRO A40’s and for the grand prize, a customized Guardians of Middle-earth Xbox 360.
On Saturday, five MOBA pros competed alongside tournament participants and all of the action was captured live on Twitch.tv for those who couldn’t attend PAX to stream. After an intense battle, Team Super Teemo & Friends won after a close match, winning the Xbox 360’s.
Members of the media were able to get hands-on time with the game and overall, were impressed with how easily adaptable a MOBA is on console. Here’s a snapshot of their impression of Guardians of Middle-earth:
As always, thank you all for your support and excitement. Being able to spend a few days with our gaming community is a big part of what makes our jobs so satisfying.
