Daedalic Entertainment has released a new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which is slated for release in 2022. The new video showcases elements of the gameplay and also features different locations and characters, such as Gandalf.
More pictures of Gollum of Sméagol’s character can be seen in the trailer, particularly how he climbs, slithers and jumps across terrain and in all kinds of different locations. The developer of Deadalic describes The Lord of the Rings: Gollum as a cinematic adventure game in which stealth and parkour are dominant elements of the gameplay.
Many well-known locations from movies and books are featured in the trailer, such as Mirkwood, but in the game players will also visit lesser-known places with Gollum. The video also features some of the main characters from the story, such as the wizard Gandalf, the elven king Thranduil, and Paradur’s lieutenant, known as the Mouth of Sauron.
Players take on the role of Gollum and experience the story and adventures from his point of view. The game will not only feature familiar events from Tolkien’s books but will also fill in the gaps in his story. It will mainly be about sneaking up on opponents and not attracting much attention, Gollum said, according to A previous look from Eurogamer On a pre-alpha version it’s worth a little bit of a fight.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be released in Q3 2022 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series consoles, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Nintendo Switch.
