Daedalic Entertainment has released the first teaser trailer for the action adventure The Lord of the Rings – Gollum. In the title, players slip into the role of Gollum and experience new adventures in Middle-earth from an "unprecedented perspective". On his journey Gollum will travel to places that have not been dealt with or shown in detail in any other medium, and will meet new and well-known characters from The Lord of the Rings. The Lord of the Rings – Gollum will be released in 2021 for PC and next-gen consoles.
This is what Daedalic writes about Lord of the Rings – Gollum:
"In the title, players slip into the role of Gollum and experience new adventures in Middle-earth from an unprecedented perspective. On his journey, Gollum explores places that have not been dealt with or shown in detail in any other medium, and meets new and well-known characters from Der Lord of the Rings The Lord of the Rings – Gollum is the first game to emerge from the new partnership between Daedalic Entertainment and Middle-earth Enterprises. Based on the licensing agreement for The Lord of the Rings, Daedalic has the option to publish multiple titles.
The new game stays true to the vision that J.R.R. Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings while illuminating new events and details surrounding Gollum's journey. The Lord of the Rings – Gollum is created using the Unreal Engine and is translated into numerous languages so that fans all over the world can enjoy the action adventure. "
In an interview with IGN Daedalic explains: "" With Gollum himself, our goal is to make him more related, as the players have to be able to slip into his skin for an entire game. So our Gollum looks less scary (and has more hair) than the movie version. "Is that a good idea?
