New Trailer For The Lord Of The Rings ‘Gollum’ Game Is Here

We saw the first gameplay footage from Daedalic Entertainment’s Gollum video game nearly a year ago. Then things went silent. After months of waiting, a new story trailer appeared on Nacon’s YouTube Channel.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum trailer gives us a preview of Gollum’s voice and what appears to be a slightly retooled appearance for the tortured Ring-bearer. Surprisingly, we’re introduced to a much younger version of Gandalf the Gray, his beard yet dyed by advanced age.

The character design is a massive departure from what we’ve become accustomed to in Peter Jackson’s films. As a result, some of the characters look almost alien, like something out of a Warhammer 40K title. Getting used to this aesthetic change may take some time, but it is welcome.

We also get a very brief look at what could be Shelob and a Nazgûl, who may be the Witch King. Gollum himself is also much younger looking, still sporting dark hair and some semblance of his Stoorish hobbit origins. He also has a friend or a friendly acquaintance, at the least, who appears to be some form of an elf.

Very little gameplay is shown, but it appears to have much in common with other stealth games, like early Assassin’s Creed titles—lots of running around in the dark, climbing structures, and evading pursuing enemies.

A release date has not been pinned down yet, but it is expected to release this year and can be wish listed on Steam.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure. Take on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to him. Gollum is skillful and cunning, but also torn by his split personality. One mind, two egos – you decide!

Gollum will also crawl his way onto other platforms such as PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and the Nintendo Switch.
