Daedalic Entertainment has announced a release date for its game, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. It will launch on September 1 this year for PC and console, with a Switch release sometime later.
The stealth game takes place after Gollum loses the One Ring to Bilbo Baggins, and he is looking for it. Early trailers implied that he will make his way to Mordor and that his alternate persona of Smeagol will play a part in the gameplay. Daedalic also revealed that some familiar faces from Middle-earth will make an appearance in the game.
The Gollum game was originally supposed to launch last year, but Daedalic has postponed it to 2022. It will also be released a day before the Amazon Prime show, Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power† The two take place in different times of Middle-earth, but they’re still a lot more Tolkien-inspired properties than we’ve had recently.
Electronic Arts also announced earlier this month that it is creating a new Lord of the Rings game, a free-to-play mobile title called Heroes of Middle-Earth.
