Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced today that their browser game The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age has now passed 1 million registered users.
The Hobbit themed free-to-play title had attracted more than 250,000 new players during its day of release back on the 21st of March.
Armies of the Third Age is a free-to-play effort developed by Kabam. It’s a tactical game set in the universe of Middle-earth and can be played on Facebook and other Web platforms.
In a press release sent out today, Warner Bros. had the following to say:
“We’re elated that fans of The Hobbit have responded so enthusiastically to The Hobbit: Armies of the Third Age and we’re incredibly proud of how the game has performed in such a short time,” said Andrew Sheppard, president of Kabam Studios. “With our mobile game, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth remaining popular on the iOS and Android charts, The Hobbit Film Trilogy has inspired one of Kabam’s hottest mobile game properties to date.”
Last year Warner Bros. and MGM had invested in Kabam to develop the game after its success with mobile strategy title The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth.
