The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Goes Gold

Daedalic Entertainment and NACON have announced that their adventure game set in the world of Lord of the Rings, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, has gone gold, meaning its development is complete, so delays are highly unlikely at this point before the game’s launch next month. Congratulations to the development team for this significant accomplishment.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has players assume the role of the Gollum through action-adventure segments. The title also features stealth elements where players can interact with environments and narrative-style gameplay to progress through the story. The actions that players take will determine which side of Gollum they see. This refers to his split personality between Sméagol and Gollum, where Sméagol is the better behaved of the two. The gameplay has adventure segments of climbing and sneaking, along with some action.

Check out the latest trailer and associated screenshots.

We also published a video interview with a member of the game’s staff at PAX.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on May 25, 2023. A Nintendo Switch version of the title is also in development, with plans to launch later this year.
