The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Team Apologizes for the Game, Promises Updates; Those Probably Won’t Help, Though

The development team behind the recently released platforming adventure game, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, recently released a statement on Twitter apologizing for the underwhelming experience players have had.

Daedalic emphasized that they have been listening to all sorts of constructive criticism, and they are working on addressing bugs and technical issues of varying severity. The team will be working on updating the game to make it the best it can possibly be, but I sincerely doubt those will improve the experience. The title is just unfun at its core.

The tweet announcing the team’s ongoing efforts to enhance The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is viewable below:

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.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
