The trailer of the game is less than one minute but is full of details and excitement. Daedalic Entertainment has promised to give players a whole new viewpoint on the world of Middle- Earth. They will get to play the life of a character named Gollum who is torn between his two personalities.

The story will follow Gollum from his days as a slave below the Dark Tower to his experiences with the Elves of Mirkwood. Moreover, all the decisions players will make will affect the balance between his Gollum side and his Sméagol side.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will also describe the character’s story before it appears in the books when he escapes from Barad Dur following capture by Sauron. It will release in new-gen consoles, Xbox Series X|S and PS5. Both the consoles will definitely help in further increasing the game’s popularity and reach. Naturally, Sony’s Playstation 5 DualSense controller with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers won’t disappoint.
