The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum

 

There are many games set in Tolkein’s LOTR universe but none have given us control of Gollum, the fallen Hobbit, until now.

This upcoming title, from German studio Daedalic Entertainment, puts players in the shoes of the titular character (does he actually wear shoes?) in a game that takes place before the movies.

Experience Gollum’s story from his time as a slave below the Dark Tower to his stay with the Elves of Mirkwood, and make decisions that have a direct effect on Gollum’s two-sided personality. Will you be a nice Hobbit? Or will you lean into Gollum’s dark side as you seek your precious? The choice is yours!

Features:

  • Sneak and climb around dangerous environments
  • Visit such places as Barad-dur Tower and the Cirith Ungol mountains in Mordor
  • Meet familiar characters from the LOTR universe

What platforms is The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum releasing on?

The game will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows on May 25th, 2023.
