Publisher Nacon and developer Daedalic Entertainment shared a gameplay reveal trailer for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum.
The new trailer gives us the first proper look at the stealth-adventure spinoff set in Tolkien’s legendary universe.
Here’s the gameplay reveal trailer:
Here’s a rundown on the 2019-announced game:
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
Athletic and agile, sneaky and cunning. Driven by the desire to once again hold in his hands what he lost, Gollum is one of the most fascinating characters in the world of The Lord of the Rings.
He has seen things that others can not imagine, he has survived things that others would not dare mention. Torn by his split personality, he can be vicious and villainous as Gollum, but social and cautious as Sméagol.
While being vital to the story by J.R.R. Tolkien, many parts of the quest have not been told in detail yet. In The Lord of the Rings: Gollum you get to experience this story. From his time as a slave below the Dark Tower to his stay with the Elves of Mirkwood.
Use stealth, agility and cunning to survive and overcome what lies ahead. Climb, leap and grapple your way past dangers or into advantageous spots.
While he might not be a fighter, it is not unlike him to assassinate a careless enemy when the chance presents itself – or dispose of them in more creative and villainous ways.
The decisions you make and the way you play have a direct influence on his personality: Always struggling between the two sides embodied by Gollum and Sméagol, it is up to you to decide whether the darker side takes over or if there is a spark of reason left in what once was Sméagol. One mind, two egos – you decide!
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum release date is set for September 1st across Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch. PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
