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 can totally recommend this. It's the best Lego game so far and wonderfully made. For everyone who likes the Hobbit and Lego this is a must- buy. There are plenty of funny and interesting aspects which keeps suspense. It may be that it is graphically seen behind all the newly released games, BUT story, middle earth and gameplay are the best so thats no problem. Most of the side quests are pretty cool and sometimes hilarious (Quest to fight Azogs mum). The DLCs are now WORKING, the old reviews just werent updated obviously. Great Game.......

10/10

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.

If you've played a lego game before you know what to expect somewhat but this was quite a unique experience. The open world really makes you feel like you're going on an adventure with Bilbo and the dwarfs in an almost Skyrim esc. manner. The game is very easy and simple to get through but if you want to 100% the game it is surprisingly difficult. Challenges range all the way from escort missions you can't fail to a race around Rivendell that is quite infuriating for all the right reasons. The challenges are quite satisfying to complete and it feels good watching the map get less and less cluttered with quests over time, you really feel like you're making progress. The controls are awful to start but can be changed very quickly to something that makes more sense for your keyboard. Overall a great game that I actually feel driven to complete 100% of the way.

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!!!

LEGO The Hobbit is, first and foremost, a LEGO game. There isn't a great deal different from other LEGO titles, in both bad and good ways. If you've tried LEGO games before and found them dull, I don't think this one will change your mind, but if you have an obsession for collection, this game will probably serve you well.

First of all, some gripes. I really don't like how the game forces you to come back later and re-do things when you already have the means to complete them at your disposal, simply locked away. It takes advantage of a child's endless appetite for repetition (Pokemon, anyone?), but as an adult it gets frustrating at times. And speaking of frustrating, the game has some bugs too. I've had characters get stuck, once even in a game-breaking way in the middle of a story mission that locked out all buttons but Start and forced me to quit. The physics on hills and edges get weird sometimes and prevent you from jumping, which can sometimes lead to the stuck thing or lead to death in the middle of a jumping puzzle. I would also get random crashes for a while, which was fixed by turning off Raptr's integration completely, even the Track Gameplay part (the only part I actually use). And the end of the game cuts off at a really bad time, though that's not entirely their fault, since from what I understand the movie does too. Perhaps they should have waited for the third movie to come out to release this. Hopefully they put out some DLC to add in the final climax. It's literally only missing the last chapter or two from the book.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, the game is still fun. It's still cathartic to beat up LEGO objects and watch them explode into fountains of loot and studs. The gradual ramp of power and wealth starts to get quite high near the end, and I feel a bit Smaug looking over my vast collection of items and riches. Okay, I admit that pun was terrible. Moving on. None of the missions, quests, or puzzles are particularly difficult or complex, but are still fun nonetheless. Suitably accessible for a child but still enjoyable for an adult, a good balance. I'm about 28 hours in and I still haven't gotten tired of it. The bits of humor injected into the game here and there are a nice touch as well. My favorite gag is Azog's missing hand actually following him around and constantly taunting him. Great way to add flavor to the original movie script. And the voice acting clips taken from the movie are a nice touch to telling the story as well, as opposed to the silent approach of early LEGO games.

By no means is LEGO The Hobbit without flaws, but if you're a fan of Traveller's Tales style of collect-a-thon games, this will be a shining Arkenstone in your collection. I picked it up for $5 on sale and more than got my money's worth out of it. Again, if you're tired of the LEGO formula or just really hate Tolkien it's probably a safe pass, but for everyone else, I'd definitely recommend giving it a try.

Update:
The Battle of the Five Armies DLC is confirmed to not be coming. Consider that sudden ending now a permenant black mark against the game. Still recommended overall, but something to consider.

Pros:
+LEGO
+Hobbit
+Fun story that mostly stays true to the movies in which it's based off of
+Lots to do that would keep you entertained long after you've beat the story mode missions

Cons:
- Incomplete/unfinished - Does not include the Battle of the Five Armies and nowhere on the store page does it indicate that it doesn't, implied as complete
- Crashes frequently
- Cutscenes sometimes overlap the black loading screen to where you cannot see them and can only hear them

Also (Depending on your play style) I have found that while playing with a gamepad/controller (I use a Logitech F310 series gamepad) controls are simple and easy to use, but playing wiith a keyboard is much more difficult. Would not recommend for sole keyboard users.

All in all, a good game, but not without its glaringly obvious problems. Overall 7/10 when it works.

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'.
