The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on May 25, publishers Nacon and Daedalic Entertainment announced. The Switch version will follow later in 2023.
New gameplay will be shown during a special showcase today at 10:30 a.m. PT / 1:30 p.m. ET on Twitch (Daedalic Entertainment, Nacon).
Here is an overview of the game, via Nacon and Daedlic Entertainment:
Based on the beloved The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, the fantasy game takes players on an epic journey across Middle-earth, starring one of the lore‘s most compelling characters: Smeagol— *Gollum, Gollum*.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure. Embark on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to you. Climb, leap, and sneak your way past dangers or into advantageous spots. Gollum is skillful and sly, and torn by a split personality. It is up to you to decide whether to yield to the darker side of Gollum or trust the kinder gentler hint of Smeagol.
Co-published by Daedalic Entertainment and Nacon, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is developed by a small team of passionate Tolkienites at Daedalic Entertainment in partnership with Middle-earth Enterprises.
