We’ve got our first look at the upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum game with a new teaser trailer from Daedalic Entertainment. While we’ve known about this game for awhile now, news about the new fantasy adventure has been mum. While we don’t have any gameplay to feast our eyes on, this cinematic teaser does look promising.
Courtesy of IGN, we’ve got our first look at The Lord of the Rings: Gollum as we see the character himself coming out of a cave to look upon Mount Doom. Lord of the Rings fans will know this particular landmark well; it was the volcano that the One Ring was destroyed in within the films and novels.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is set to be a prequel to the books from Tolkien and aims to be an enticing stealth-oriented game that will focus on Gollum’s two selves: Gollum and Smeagol.
“The Lord of the Rings is one of the most epic and renowned stories of all time – it’s an honor for us to have the opportunity to work on our own contribution to this universe,” Carsten Fichtelmann, CEO and Co-Founder of Daedalic Entertainment, mentioned back when the game was first announced last year. “In Gollum, players will assume the role of one of the most iconic characters in Middle-earth. We tell Gollum’s story from a perspective never seen before, in any storytelling medium, all the while staying true to the legendary books of J.R.R. Tolkien.”
We, unfortunately, don’t have any release date information at this time, though we do know that it is slated for a next-gen launch with the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
