Gollum coming out? – Destructoid


How incredibly precious

Having spent years in development, and having suffered numerous delays, publisher Nacon has finally announced a launch date for its Tolkien adaptation The Lord of the Rings: Gollum — The fantasy adventure title will crawl out of its cave on May 25 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.

The third-person adventure will tell the tale of the notable Tolkien character Smeagol, better known among LOTR as “Gollum”, after the strange guttural noises that emerge from his esophagus. Set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the game will see Gollum embark upon his own odyssey across Middle-Earth, meeting tentative allies and bitter enemies in his pursuit of the core of his being… “The Precious”.

You can check out a new, lengthy gameplay showcase video below.

Developed by Daedalic, this ambitious project has seen several setbacks since its initial reveal way back in the spring of 2019, but is finally on the road to fruition. Offering new LOTR lore, a very different perspective on Middle-Earth, and an intriguing “inner turmoil” mechanic, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be nothing if not interesting for Tolkien fans, who will get to experience their favorite universe from the perspective of one of its strangest, saddest, and most conflicted characters.

The Lord of The Rings: Gollum launches on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox on May 23. A Nintendo Switch edition will follow at a later date.
