The first teaser trailer for the upcoming stealth adventure The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was recently published.
In May of this year, we reported on the first screenshots from the upcoming stealth adventure The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. After that, it got very quiet around the title, but today Daedalic Entertainment released a first teaser trailer, which you can watch under these lines.
According to the developers, Gollum should stay true to the vision of JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Some new events from Gollum’s journey are also discussed. The actual game consists of stealth sequences and platform elements.
Smeagol and Gollum
The focus, however, is the internal conflict between Smeagol and Gollum. This conflict is taken up playfully. At key moments, you have various options that illustrate Gollum’s conflict.
Commenting on the gameplay, lead game designer Martin Wilkes said,
Most of the time this is a no-fight game, but Gollum will be able to stealthily take out enemies. However, this will not be easy and always involve great risks. We want the players to weigh these encounters carefully. After all, Gollum’s strengths lie in cunning, not in combat.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum should appear sometime in 2021 for the PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5.
