Developers Daedalic Entertainment announced a new Lord of the Rings video game last year. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a stealth-based action-adventure title that focuses on Tolkien’s popular character Gollum. While we know the game has been in development for some time now, the developers have confirmed that it will be headed to next-gen consoles including the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
In The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, you will take the role of Gollum but according to Daedalic Entertainment, it will not be the character you know from the movie series. Instead, it will tell a prequel story to the books in a narrative-driven experience.
In an interview with EDGE and, Senior Producer Kai Fiebig said;
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will focus on the characters iconic split personality and players will be able to use it to help them in the game.
Apart from that, players will also be able to make narrative choices through Gollum’s personalities that will change the course of the game. It sure sounds like it is going to be a fresh new take on the Lord of the Rings series for sure. The game is set for a 2021 release on PS5, Xbox Series X and PC.
