Frodo Becomes a Playable Character in Guardians of Middle-earth

The first character DLC for the Guardians of Middle-earth game is now available and it is none other than the ring bearer himself, Frodo! Check out the full reveal trailer below.

As an instrumental member of the Fellowship of the Ring, Frodo was best known as the ring-bearer during the Quest for the Rings. Before his infamous journey to Mordor, Frodo’s interests trailed beyond the Shire which could be attributed to his Took bloodlines.
