The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Sounds Like It'll Launch on PS5

Lord of the Rings Gollum PS4 PS5

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is seen as the first in a new wave of officially-licenced games based on Tolkien's epic high fantasy world, and will launch on 2021 on "all relevant console platforms at that time".

Lord of the Rings games have let us adventure as the Fellowship, as some half-wraith ranger whose orc-slaying exploits conveniently never came up elsewhere, and even as our own custom MMORPG characters.

German video game developers Daedalic Entertainment have announced that the action-adventure Lord of the Rings: Gollum will follow the years of J.R.R. Tolkien character (first introduced in 1937's The Hobbit) after he acquired the One Ring, but before the events depicted in Sir Peter Jackson's cinematic trilogy.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Game Announced

The Hollywood Reporter has word that Middle-Earth Enterprises - a division of Saul Zentz that covers licensing for video games and other paraphernalia directly for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit novels, and was recently caught up in a big lawsuit alongside Warner Bros. We have the story that we all know from the book, but everything that happens to him before he appears in the book are the main things we will see in our game.

Unfortunately, Daedalic has not released any screenshots or trailer for this new TLOTR game. It is now scheduled to release at some point in 2021 on PC and "all relevant console platforms at that time", which likely means current-gen consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One, and next-gen platforms as well.

"Our goal was to present a storytelling experience". The estate of the prolific writer Tolkien chose the German game maker because they liked their approach to the game play, rather than being all about the graphics. With Amazon planning on releasing a new tv series based on the famous series, it seems like Daedalic is stepping up to take a bite of the action as well with The Lord of the Rings: Gollum.
