It has only been a few short weeks since Frodo showed up, but WB Games and Monlith have revealed yet another DLC character coming to “Guardians of Middle-Earth.” Elrond, the half-elven lord of Rivendell, will now be lending his blade and abilities to the cause on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Here are all of the character details straight from Monolith:
As the Half-elven Ruler of Rivendell, Elrond is a mighty leader and the brother to Elros, the first King of Númenor. During the end of the Second Age, his exceptional skills were put to use when the Last Alliance of Elves and Men set out from Rivendell for Mordor where they fought in the Battle of Dagorlad and eventually defeated Sauron. He would later welcome both Bilbo and Frodo to Rivendell during the War of the Ring.
Elrond’s Gameplay Abilities:
Call of Rivendell: Increases movement and attack speeds, damage
Elven Grace: Damages enemies and give stealth to allies
Take Refuge: Area effect increases health and resistances
Honored Guard: Summons an archer to damage and slow enemies
And we’ll wrap things up with some awesome character art…
