The Lord of the Rings: Gollum game trailer
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was first announced by Daedalic Entertainment in March 2019. Since then, fans have received a short teaser trailer of the game in August 2020. The teaser didn’t show much apart from the main character of the game, Gollum, looking at Mordor with burning Mount Doom in the distance. Later, in July 2021, the gameplay trailer was released, in which Daedalic Entertainment producer introduced players to the game’s story:
“By looking at events from [Gollum’s] angle, players will experience Middle Earth through the eyes and twisted mind of one of the most iconic characters of all time,” said Harald Riegler.
During this year’s Game Awards, the Lord of the Rings: Gollum game trailer was revealed, giving more insight into the game, in a more cinematic style. We think that the developers did a really remarkable job when it comes to the game’s graphics.
So what can players expect from the Lord of the Rings: Gollum gameplay? According to the gameplay overview trailer, which we’ve already mentioned, the game will focus on the story of Gollum, who is one of the most crucial characters in the LOTR franchise. His story is inevitably intertwined with the events that decide the fate of Middle Earth. Gollum has traveled everywhere in search of his precious ring.
The gameplay will revolve around creeping, sneaking, and tricking other characters through various locations and environments, from the pits of the Dark Tower, also known as Barad-dûr, to the woodland of Mirkwood. Moreover, the developers promise that we’ll see all the locations in the never seen before detail. They also ensure that the game will be a faithful representation of the books by J.R.R. Tolkien. Players will meet all the iconic Lord of the Rings characters, like Gandalf and Thranduil, as well as new and less known ones. We’ll also see the face of the Mouth of Sauron for the first time!
Moreover, Daedalic has confirmed that the game will feature ray-tracing, an advanced light and shadow rendering. This can only mean that the game will be a truly cinematic experience. It can also make stealth in the game even more challenging.

The game’s release date is yet to be announced. All we know for now is that it will be coming out in Fall 2022 on PC, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
