Lord of the Rings: Gollum will launch sometime in 2021 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC according to the developers Daedalic Entertainment.
Daedalic Entertainment's upcoming title, which will follow the slimy creature Gollum from Lord of the Rings series now has a release window. Just like the developers earlier aimed, the game should be coming sometime in 2021 for PC and the next-generation consoles - PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
The developers confirmed this in their interview with the Edge magazine for its February 2020 issue, which features a number of new details and interviews with the studio.
In case you're not familiar with Lord of the Rings: Gollum, it's a narrative-driven adventure. As for the story and the setting, the game takes place before the events in the movies where Gollum is already in the possession of the One Ring.
Not a lot has been revealed at the game since it's official reveal in March 2019 but it looks like the new interview could reveal a lot of fresh stuff. We know that Gollum's split personality will make a huge impact on the gameplay, and players will often have to make decisions and will hear different voices talking to them.
The devs confirmed that Gollum will be able to change his mind during the story which could suggest that the creature may refuse to do certain actions. Sounds pretty interesting and we can't wait to see some actual gameplay.
Keep in mind that Daedalic's Gollum will not be Andy Serkis version of the character as the developer have rights to the books and not the movies, meaning that we're getting another version of Gollum. Gollum is built on the Unreal Engine.
