Lord of the Rings Gollum is launching on September 1st (but not on Switch)
Daedalic Entertainment has today revealed that Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be coming to PC and consoles on September 1st, arriving initially on PC through Steam, to PlayStation 4/5 and Xbox One/Series X/S. The Nintendo Switch version of Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be launching at a "later date".
The story of Lord of the Rings: Gollum takes place in parallel to the early events of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The game tells the untold story of Gollum, taking what is known from the Lord of the Rings book series and uses them to tell new stories within the Middle Earth universe. This game is not related to any other Lord of the Rings game or adaptation, and will include both new and iconic characters from the franchise.
Much of this game is said to focus on Gollum's agility and climbing abilities. The game's story is also said to focus on the twisted Hobbit's two personalities, allowing players to choose to lean towards his Gollum and Sméagol personalities with various moral choices. Given the game's new release date, we expect to see new trailers and gameplay for Lord of the Rings: Gollum over the next few weeks/months.
Below is what Daedalic Entertainment had to say about Lord of the Rings: Gollum on Steam.
We are happy to finally reveal the release date of the story-driven stealth adventure The Lord of the Rings: Gollum - Daedalic’s take on one of the most iconic characters in fantasy history arrives on Steam on September 1st, 2022.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum , based on the legendary Lord of the Rings-trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, tells Gollum’s experiences from behind-the-scenes in the first chapters of The Fellowship of the Ring.
After losing his precious ring to Bilbo Baggins, Gollum decides to leave the Misty Mountains and embarks on a perilous journey that leads him from the dungeons of Bard-dûr to the realm of the Wood-elves in Mirkwood. In order to survive the dangers on his journey through Middle-earth, Gollum has to sneak, climb and use all his cunning. He also has to deal with his more human side - Sméagol. It’s up to the players if they want Gollum to have the upper hand when it comes to making important decisions or let Sméagol take over. Gollum also encounters well-known characters from the books as well as a few new faces.
See you soon in Middle-earth!
