The first look at The Lord of the Rings: Gollum from Daedalic Entertainment has arrived!
While Daedalic announced LoR: Gollum last year, nothing more has really been said about the game. It’s been confirmed that Gollum will be a stealth-action game, heavily focusing on the narrative. The story will follow Gollum/Smeagol from his own perspective. The new screenshots show off so much of Mordor, Gollum, and various other places and creatures.
“We are extremely pleased to announce our partnership with multi-award-winning Daedalic Entertainment, to build an innovative, lore-centric game for discerning fans of The Lord of the Rings. With their focus on characters and story, enhanced by rich and evocative artwork, Daedalic is committed to building games for readers who become gamers,” said Fredrica Drotos. “We eagerly anticipate the release of Daedalic’s narrative-driven adventure gameplay, which is uniquely matched to the complex, deeply-nuanced world of Middle-earth, created by J.R.R. Tolkien.”
“The Lord of the Rings is one of the most epic and renowned stories of all time – it’s an honour for us to have the opportunity to work on our own contribution to this universe,” said Carsten Fichtelmann, CEO of Daedalic Entertainment. “In Gollum, players will assume the role of one of the most iconic characters in Middle-earth. We tell Gollum’s story from a perspective never seen before, in any storytelling medium, all the while staying true to the legendary books of J.R.R. Tolkien.”
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is set to release on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2021.
