The new title dedicated to the Tolkien saga, The Lord of the Rings Gollum, has left us with a dry mouth for a long time in terms of information, but here is that the game returns to show itself with lots of models of some characters, including Gandalf.
Since the game was officially announced in 2019 we have had little news over time. It is a media that will expand the Tolkien world, rather than re-propose something already shown in the cinema. More precisely, it will be set in a rather unexplored period straddling The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Last March we were able to see something more thanks to the first gameplay trailer, but now we finally have the opportunity to take a deeper look thanks to a new presentation video uploaded to the Nacon channel. The producer Harald Riegler spoke about the artistic aspect of the game, its setting, specifying that it is a “cinematic action adventure “ in which we will explore locations never seen before in the other adaptations through stealth passages and actions that will require climbing, jumping and overcoming dangers with methods of platformer memory.
Riegler describes the gameplay as a mixture of stealth and parcour, as we play one of the most complex characters ever created by JRR Tolkien, on a journey that will take him from Mordor to the depths of Moria. Also, in the video we can finally take a look at the models of some characters that will be featured in The Lord of the Rings Gollum, as the Mouth of Sauron, one of the dark lord’s most devoted servants, Thranduil, the king of the elves and father of Legolas, and finally a first look at the model of Gandalf.
The decisions made in the game will develop a different personality in Gollum; he will not be a fighter, but he is no stranger to assassinating enemies when the situation arises. The most interesting detail, however, is that after being postponed to next year, we finally have a launch window: The Lord of the Rings Gollum will be released in autumn 2022 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox X / S series, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, players will finally be able to return to Middle-earth meeting Gandalf, Thranduil and other beloved characters of the saga.
