A proposed downloadable expansion to LEGO The Hobbit, which was expected to be based on the final instalment of the movie trilogy, will not see light of day.

In a statement sent to GameSpot, publisher Warner Bros did not explicitly state that the expansion had been cancelled, rather that "there are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy." The publisher also confirmed that it has no plans to release a new game based on the film.

"The LEGO The Hobbit videogame gives LEGO and Middle-earth fans a fun, new way to experience the legendary adventures of Bilbo and company as told in the first two films of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy. The game provides an excellent set-up for the concluding chapter of Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. There are no plans to develop DLC based on the final film of the trilogy."

SPOILER ALERT - Nope, just kidding. This game was released without the last 1/3 of the story. THIS GAME IS INCOMPLETE, AND SHOULD BE ADVERTISED AS UNFINISHED.

This isn't an "epic adventure across Middle Earth to recapture the Lonely Mountain." Lies, precious! No Mountains were captured in the making (or playing) of this game.

LEGOs n' Tolkien? This is biblical status nerdism! By far one of the most progressive LEGO games to date, LEGO Hobbit is super pretty and cleverly put together. Even with the chaos of dozens of characters, the game is patient & advises you gently, like a priest might. Unfortunately, this LEGO game is like one of those priests I warn parents about because he turns out to be untrustworthy and may make your children cry.

Shameful part is, I was happily playing when it ended suddenly. No matter how good your game is, and this WAS A GOOD GAME, you're a buncha dirty cheats if you are using it to distract me so you can jot down my credit card information for later. I'm a diehard Tolkien fan from the time my Dad read me the Hobbit & LOTR as a beautiful series of bedtime stories. Those are some of my fondest childhood memories aside from the beatings, and it's a shame that I can't honestly recommend this lovely game interpretion as it is missing a huge part: the end.

Pros:

* Invisible walls seem to be popping up way less, they must've cut the guy whose job that was. Good thing he got that job working on Shadows of Mordor.
* Purdy scenery & funny NPC dialogue, voice actors & game designers were obviously having fun.
* New minigames that are forgiving and interesting to watch. I thought the building quests were a great idea.
* LEGO LOTR never saved a single checkpoint for me, this game worked perfectly in that regard. Thank you, from the people who are overachievers and gotta catch 'em all.
* Helpful gameplay, lots of advice that you can choose to read or ignore.
* Improved camera, which still isn't saying much. Better than a sharp stick in the eye?
* IT IS TOLKIEN Y'ALL

Cons:

* No sheep racing. Baaaaaaaaaa-d.
* Until you beat the whole game, you can't have freeplay in the main world. No changing characters or roaming free for a minute, LEGO Hobbit is here to make you eat your meat before you get to enjoy your pudding.
* Repetitive gameplay, but to be fair that is what you're signing up for.
* No cheat codes except for characters. Sad for kids who keep falling or find parts of it too hard. I don't have kids but I can imagine their teary little faces. Heh heh. I mean. Aw.
* Silence from TT about DLC and updates.
* May seem picky, but not being able to zoom in and out of the unlabeled map was very frustrating. There are a few parts in the game where they make it impossible for you to go back the way you came, which is a tried & true idea but if you're going for that your map had better be easy to navigate and specific. This was neither. It kind of ruins the epic feel when you can't see a clear image of the entire world.

Looks like Warner Bros. Cancelled the planned DLC for Five Armies. It's was a suppose to complete the hobbit trilogy but it seems we are left with an incomplete story.
I would recommend it as the formula works with any other complete Lego game.

Amazing game however I would not recommend buying because the third film isn't included.

There has been no word if it will be released at all either.

I would definitely recommend this game should a straight yes or no from the developers comes about, I just feel this game is incomplete without the third film.

I bought this game because it was originally advertised that the content from third film would be included as a DLC after the movie's release. However, that is no longer the case. If the advertising had been more honest before the movie's release, I would not have bought the game.

How can I rate this.
Good game overall, but the story isn't completed yet and won't be continued
http://www.gamespot.com/articles/no-plans-to-release-lego-the-hobbit-s-five-armies-/1100-6425900/

So, there'll be no more Middle Earth Lego experience ever again, move along to Beyond Gotham or Jurassic Park

Just another fun and awesome Lego game !! I have the first one Lego Lord of the Rings and this one is just as good if not better ! The new crafting system puzzle is real kool ! The look seems a bit better then the first also.The controls are good! I always recommed a controller with any LEGO game.It will make the switching between character's and accessing items and stuff faster.I Really like the buddy system added in this game to get tasks done.

I'm a older gamer and i think LEGO does a amazing job making games that appeal to young and older gamers!!

As most have said also this game is only the first 2 movies and the 3rd should be a added DLC !! So i hope this gets done to make it a compelete game and get the full story(Get on this LEGO) !!

Also check out Lego Marvel Super Heroes if you dont own it yet !! Killer game also !! GO TEAM LEGO!!!

There will be no conclusion to this game.
I bought this game expecting to be able to play through the full story, and had high expectations for their portrayal of The Battle Of The Five Armies, because, let's face it, it is the climax of the story and has most of the action. For Warner Bros. to announce that they will not expand the game to include BOTFA, is just ridiculous.
Only buy this game if you like leaving the cinema half an hour before a film ends or quitting a book just before the action starts. I hope you, that one strange person who likes incomplete stories, can enjoy this game more than I can

Great game but they arnt going to finish it, i guess Lego and Lord of the Rings didnt make enough money off us over the last 15 years so they couldnt afford to finish the game. Even as a thank you to the fans. Lame wont be buying any more Lego or Lotr games.

Well, while its not bad LEGO game in general, its not as epic and entertaining as LEGO LoTR. It have some new game mechanics as building, mining, buddy attacks and more, which are pretty good to be honest, but it is INCOMPLETE GAME coz it miss last and MOST IMPORTANT part of story and that just kills the game. Totally. And since Devs said there wont be any DLC which would include that missing part, I feel pretty backstabbed as a customer. Its about 1/4 of story part which is missing.
So if you are thinking about this game, think twice about it as it is product which is not bad in general, but is incomplete and that SUX. HARD!
I personally regret of buing this game :-/

This game was fantastic. I loved everything about it. The details in the scenery, the voiced characters, and the puzzle solving elements all make this game great. So why would I not reccomend it? Because it is unfinished and will continue to be so indefinitely. Warner brothers has announced that it will not release the third movie DLC for the game leaving you "complete" the game and still not have an ending. Unless the final DLC is released, I wouldn't reccomend spending a single cent on this game.

This game had so much potential and is quite a solid LEGO game (if you're into that sort of thing) but I CAN NOT recommend it on the basis that the promised 'Five Armies' DLC has been ABANDONED. Why on earth would anyone want to pay good money for 2/3 of a story? It makes no sense. Warner Bros should be ashamed of themselves, tricking people into paying for a product on the promise that it will be finished later, only to back out of it later on. STEAM should be more honest and label this game as a 'EARLY ACCESS'.

Don't bother, it's not even finished. A really entertaining Lego-game, but can't recommend a product that cuts off before the end.
