We have to wait a little while before we play the dark creature Gollum from the movies “Sagan om Ringen”.
Now, instead, German developers Daedalic Entertainment announced that they are delaying the release of the game until 2022, after they “formed a brotherhood” with publishers Nacon.
We are forming a company with Embed a Tweet To publish The Lord of the Rings ™: Gollum ™.
The game will be released in 2022 on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Extended development time allows Daedalic Entertainment to “harness the power of the next generation of consoles”, as the game is on its way to Playstation 5, Playstation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
The game takes place before the movies and books, after the Hobbit Sméagol gets the magic ring and slowly turns into the dark creature Gollum. The game has nothing to do with the Peter Jackson movies, but it is a story in itself. In the game you have the opportunity to make choices, either Gollum or Sméagol. The developers themselves describe it as “a story-driven action adventure with a peek.”
Could a game that focused entirely on Gollum be any good? What is the best “Lord of the Rings” game?
