Google Chrome's interactive Journey Through Middle Earth website has received an update to coincide with the release of Peter Jackson's final Hobbit movie, Battle of the Five Armies.

As Creativity Online reports, the updated site features "interactive battlegrounds, where visitors can pretend they're taking part in epic battles from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Hobbit books, entering locations such as the Black Gate, Lonely Mountain and Helm's Deep. Players can choose whether to be good or evil and are given a Tolkien-esque name before pitting themselves against mythical creatures from the books and films. They can also challenge friends to a battle using peer-to-peer gameplay technology."
