The Hobbit: Kingdoms now on Android

Just in time for the launch of this year’s big budget blockbuster, developer Kabam has stuck an Android version of The Hobbit: Kingdoms up on the Play Store. It’s rather similar in format to Kabam’s previous titles Arcane Empires and Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle, offering a massively-multiplayer strategy game in which you chat, run about and worry about your various levels and EXP counts.

And it’s officially licensed, too.

The Hobbit: Kingdoms is free to download, but packed to bursting with in-app purchases required in order to progress at anything like a bearable speed.
