Upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Has Been Delayed Until 2022

Anticipation for The Lord of The Rings: Gollum solo game has been high since the game’s announcement back in 2019, however it appears fans will have to wait a little longer.

The developers behind the game, Daedalic Entertainment, have announced a partnership (or ‘fellowship’) with Nacon to ensure that the game will live up to fan expectations. The two companies have signed a co-publishing and distribution agreement regarding the game. According to the joint statement, the aim is to ensure the game fully supports the power of the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles.

Along with this new union, it has been announced that The Lord of The Rings: Gollum has been pushed back to 2022. There is no specific release date aside from that.

The teaser trailer dropped August 2020 and gave us a look at what the upcoming game had in store. The trailer didn’t give much away but it did showcase some impressive cinematic visuals. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been described as a story-driven “stealth adventure game”. It is expected that there will be puzzles and climbing challenges along the way. The game puts the player in the shoes of Gollum to take on a journey to chase his one and only precious. An interesting element of the game is that your decisions control whether the dark side of Gollum takes over or brings out any of the reasoning left in what was once Smeagol.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is in partnership with Middle-Earth Enterprises, the company which holds the adaptation rights to J.R.R. Tolkien’s works.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been developed for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
