The Lord of the Rings: Gollum releases this September

MY PRECIOUS! Daedalic Entertainment announced the release date of its game, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. From what we see from the cinematic trailer, we get to play stealthily as Gollum (and his alternate persona Smeagol)!

LOTR: Gollum is set during the first few chapters of The Fellowship of the Ring. In this stealth action-adventure game, players will get to make choices that will affect the outcome of the story. A “Butterfly Effect” gameplay mechanic I personally enjoy! Though I’ll fail at the stealth parts most of the time. Oops.

Daedalic also revealed that we can expect some familiar faces from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth! Whatchu Tolkien about? That’ll be a treat for the fans of the franchise!

Originally set to launch last year, the game will now release on September 1 this year for PC, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, one day before the Amazon Prime show, Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power TV series! A Nintendo Switch launch will follow later this year.
