Nacon and Daedalic Entertainment today announced the signing of a co-publishing and distribution agreement for upcoming action-adventure game The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. The same e-mailed press release reveals that the title's launch has been pushed to 2022.
Initially slated to release in 2021, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum shines the spotlight on Frodo and Sam's strange companion while focusing on the less detailed portions of his story, such as "his time as a slave below the Dark Tower" or "his stay with the Elves of Mirkwood."
Nacon and Daedalic Entertainment have teamed up "to ensure that the game will meet the expectations of fans of The Lord of the Rings." Their partnership with Middle-earth Enterprises – company that holds the adaptation rights to J.R.R. Tolkien's series of novels – will ensure that the universe is "faithfully represented" in the upcoming game.
Gollum's adventure continues to remain shrouded in mystery at the moment, but its Steam page does mention having to use "stealth, agility and cunning to survive and overcome what lies ahead." There'll be more climbing and leaping away from danger than fighting, but he seemingly won't shy away from assassinating opponents or getting rid of them in "more creative and villainous ways."
Players will also have to make decisions that alter the character's personality as the inner battle between Gollum and Sméagol rages on. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is set to release in 2022 and headed to PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
