The Lord of the Rings: Gollum often felt as elusive as the title character. Daedalic Entertainment announced the game way back in 2019, but has provided little information since then – a few screenshots and a very quick gameplay teaser talked about its scope. Well, as part of today’s Nacon Connect showcase, we got a little more substantial look at the game. We took a look at some of the characters and environments that Gollum will encounter, as well as some new gameplay.
Most notably, we get our first look at Mirkwood’s Elf House, a much greener and more lush area than the dark and gloomy mines of Moria we’ve seen so far. We also get a first look at some of the characters, including Sauron’s mouth, Thranduil, and yes, Gandalf himself. You can see it all for yourself below.
For those who haven’t kept up, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum promises to expand the Tolkien universe in some interesting ways (it takes place during the largely unexplored period between The Hobbit and LOTR) and features some promising players- choice mechanics, as your “Gollum” and “Smeagol” sides battle each other. Here’s a brief official description of the game…
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is the first video game to emerge from the new partnership between Daedalic Entertainment and Middle-earth Enterprises, with room for more new experiences in the future. Staying true to the vision set forth in JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, this new title will also explore new events and details related to Gollum’s journey. Powered by Unreal Engine, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be localized in multiple languages, so fans around the world can enjoy this new action-adventure.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is crawling sometime in Fall 2022 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.
