Actually, the action-adventure The Lord of the Rings: Gollum should appear in the course of this year for the PC as well as consoles – including a NextGen release for the PS5 and Xbox Series X. But you will be patient a little longer for better or worse must than previously thought. The publication in 2021 is definitely off the table.
As the two participating publishers or developers Daedalic Entertainment and Nacon have announced, the release will be postponed to next year. A specific date is just as little known as the exact reasons that ultimately led to this postponement. In the official statement, in which the two companies have announced their closer cooperation at the same time, it only says that they want to join forces in the future to "ensure that the game meets expectations".

Accordingly, the development team simply needs a little more time to bring The Lord of the Rings: Gollum to the desired level. In the action adventure you slip into the role of Gollum, whom you will surely know from the great film trilogy by director Peter Jackson. Just like there – and in the novel – you can choose between the two personalities (Gollum and Smeagol) in the game for certain passages of the game. The protagonist can climb, jump and sometimes sneak to defy the dangers during his adventurous journey.

We give all readers daily free news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts on their favorite games. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. As a PC Games supporter, you can support us so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
