The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a historical venture game. It’s the first game of a new merger between the German publisher and Middle-earth Enterprises. Developers Daedalic is using Epic’s Unreal Engine to make the game.
The game will release in 2021, but the exact release date of the game is not decided yet. But the game can arrive in mid-2021 as the schedule of previous middle earth games
The game will release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch, respectively. It is reported that games that will release in 2021 will also have Google Stadia as a platform.
Gollum as Center of Attention
The story takes place in the same timeline of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first book of The Lord of the Rings. It follows the journey of Gollum and what happens before Frodo and his companions find him trailing them in the Mines of Moria.
Carsten Fichtelmann told more about the game “We’ll tell his story until he first shows up” in The Fellowship of the Ring, Fichtelmann said. “Sometimes, they mention some things that happen to Gollum, but nobody knows exactly what happened. That’s our task, explaining what exactly happened there.”
So this is a basic indication that the game will show the early life of Gollum. So a possible appearance of Smeagol could be in the game. After the significant success of Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War, Gollum’s story will unveil in the game. However, movies and tv shows still lacks the background of the beast.
