The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is an upcoming Lord of the Rings video game.
The game is based solely on J.R.R. Tolkien's novel trilogy. It focuses on Gollum, covering his activities from the finding of the One Ring to the start of The Fellowship of the Ring. Various characters will be encountered, including some unique to the game itself.
The game will revolve around stealth. Player choice will focus into the game, in a system where they choose between the "Smeagol decision" and the "Gollum decision." Gollum is able to climb walls and attack enemies from above, but is poorly suited for direct combat.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is the first game they will produce under said deal struck by Daedalic Entertainment and Middle-earth Enterprises. Daedalic was able to secure the deal as, according to Daedalic, "it was clear that the Tolkien Estate looked for a company that was capable of doing something which is more story-orientated than some of the other products that came out over the last years."
On January 6, 2020, senior producer Kai Fiebig revealed that Gollum's character design will not resemble that from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. Art director Mathias Fischer also noted that the story would include a number of the "less cool", or less popular, Nazgûl.
On May 4, 2020, it was reported that the game will be released for Xbox Series X, PC, and PS5. A number of in-game screenshots were revealed.
