Get ready to return to Middle-earth, as The Lord of the Rings: Gollum crawls into stores today. The game is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. A Nintendo Switch version is also planned.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure set in the world of the novels. Players will embark on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to him. Climb, leap, and sneak your way past dangers or into advantageous spots.

Gollum is skillful and sly, and torn by a split personality. Will you decide to yield to the darker side of Gollum, or trust the kinder gentler hint of Sméagol? You’ll travel from the depths of Mordor to the beautiful realm of the wood elves. Along the way, meet characters both familiar and new in a story steeped deep in the lore of Middle-earth.  

Carsten Fichtelmann, CEO of Daedalic Entertainment on Gollum: “Our game is true to the lore created by professor Tolkien for which we are very proud. This narrative adventure is a treat for all fans of The Lord of the Rings and players can look forward to meeting both new faces and old friends!”

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Launch Details

Co-published by Daedalic Entertainment and NACON, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been developed by a small team at Daedalic Entertainment.

The game drew some significant attention in recent months for locking voice acting behind a paywall. Whether or not this will have an impact on sales remains to be seen. However, early opinions on the game paint a lack lustre picture at best, so that almost definitely will.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum crawls out of it’s hole and onto for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One digitally. A physical version for consoles also available. As stated above, Nintendo Switch version is planned for later this year. No specific dates have yet been announced.
