With all of the joking and prodding done around here for the gameplay to finally come for The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum, we are finally met with just that. Not only gameplay but it looks as if Daedalic Entertainment is also ready to let loose some of the big news too. That news being that we will get to go on this huge Gollum adventure on May 25th if we are looking to pick the game up on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, or PC. Those looking to expand their lore for The Lord Of The Rings on the Switch are going to have to wait a little longer. It will be this year still, but just a little longer so you can take this bad boy on the road with you.
We have a release date for The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum, now we get to look at the massive bit of gameplay that the team was willing to share with us all. It is from an earlier build of the game, so take note of that, but it does look about how we have speculated it will all be. This is a stealth game and we are going to need to climb, crawl, and parkour around the maps to stay out of sight. Not only that, but also uses things as distractions to be able to move about while not drawing attention to Gollum. All of which told through the lens of the protagonist to explain why things look different to those who only know The Lord Of The Rings from certain mediums too. Also to make sure we have a decent death mechanic as we know the character cannot die at this point in the story but we need that threat in the game. So we can see there will be at least something to better explain things away while we stick to the shadows in the world.
The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum — Gameplay Showcase
Daedalic Entertainment and NACON announced that their highly anticipated adventure game, The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum, will release to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on May 25th. A version for Nintendo Switch is planned for later this year. Based on the beloved The Lord Of The Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, the fantasy game takes players on an epic journey across Middle-earth, starring one of the lore‘s most compelling characters: Sméagol — Gollum.
The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure. Embark on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to you. Climb, leap, and sneak your way past dangers or into advantageous spots. Gollum is skillful and sly, and torn by a split personality. It is up to you to decide whether to yield to the darker side of Gollum or trust the kinder gentler hint of Sméagol.
Are you excited to see how this chapter in Gollum’s story plays out or do you just want a good stealth game in general? Will there be a good reason why we find random food to health us up along the way or will that just be part of the game balance? Do you expect there to be much that will deviate from the source or will it be as true as possible with the gameplay built all around that? Take all of those thoughts and place them into the comment section below while keeping the discussion going. I am sure we will see much more of the polished gameplay for The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum as we head toward that release date, so please keep checking back for all of those updates and everything else that can be offered up along the way.
