The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, the stealth game starring the famous Tolkien character, delayed its release to 2022, and will reach all platforms.
JRR Tolkien’s Middle-earth has been the setting for many video games, most of which were released around the launch of Peter Jackson’s trilogy, although more recently we have enjoyed the best, with Shadows of Mordor and Shadow of War. And Amazon Prime Video prepares the new series of The Lord of the Rings ( whose pilot is already filmed, directed by JA Bayona ), Daedalic Entertainment prepares a new game starring one of the most famous characters: Gollum.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been seen in some images and concept art, detailing that it will be a third-person game in which stealth will prevail and not combat, and that it will reflect the duality between Gollum-Smeagol in a playable way. Sadly, the game, which was scheduled for 2021, is pushed back to 2022.
The German studio Daedalic develops this game that will be published by Nacon, the French publisher behind several sports games, such as Tennis World Tour 2, as well as the next Vampire The Masquerade -Swansong or the new Test Drive.
Lord of the Rings Gollum is in development for all platforms. Although it was originally announced for the next-gen, a year ago ( PS5 and Xbox Series X ), it will also be released on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The need to optimize a game on all hardware probably takes more time than expected.
