Not all those who wander are lost… In preparation for the Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug fans can now take part in this amazing on-line Chrome experience to explore Middle-Earth.

Start Journey Here.

The on-line experience takes fans through an adventure that unfolds across an interactive map of Middle-earth. Users can zoom in to explore Trollshaw Forest, Rivendell and Dol Guldur, with new locations set to be added in the weeks ahead. Each destination on the map gives the visitor access to its history and the characters who inhabit it, or presents unique survival challenges in which fans can test their wits. The animations are something to experience. It really does transport one right into Middle-Earth. The video below demonstrates is brilliantly!

“Journey Through Middle-earth” is the first Chrome Experiment designed to bring a full 3D experience to mobile, with technology support for WebGL in Chrome for Android on devices with high-end graphics cards. Although WebGL isn’t supported on iOS, Chrome users can still experience most of “Journey Through Middle-earth” on their iPhones and iPads.”
