If you've ever wanted to explore the story of Gollum deeper, then The Lord of The Rings: Gollum will give you that chance. Players will have the ability to play as the iconic Lord of The Rings character in an all-new story, exploring the time between The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring. Per the developer, players will see a much different Gollum than what you've come to know from the books and films, and that Gollum's double personality will play directly into the story.

"It's too early to say if stealth fans are going to love this one since it wasn't the primary focus of the gameplay preview, but I can say with some confidence that The Lord of the Rings fans will find a lot to enjoy." - The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a Promising, Quirky Adventure

The Lord of The Rings: Gollum will be available Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox X | S, and PC on September 1, 2022. It will launch on Nintendo Switch later in 2022.

Developer Quote

"We don’t want to displease the folks who have only seen the movies. But in short, he doesn’t look like Andy Serkis. We started with the person he was and then evolved him. You can see that this was once something like a human being, before the Ring corrupted him. We have more storytelling possibilities than the movies ever had, and for us, it was very important to show a different set of emotions. We need somebody you could almost love, and on the other hand somebody you can really be afraid of. And at some points, trust me, you will fear him." - Senior Producer Kai Fiebig to Edge Online
