The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on May 25, publishers Nacon and Daedalic Entertainment announced. The Switch version will follow later in 2023.
Anything but this please. Maybe a big action RPG starting off in the Shire and making the entire journey with Frodo and Sam to Mordor all the while having the party grow and shrink as characters come in and out of the story. The battle at the black gate, Osgiliath, walking through the dead marshes, the mines of Moria with the balrog, Minas Tirith... there is so much to mine for content. Hell, I'd rather play a LotR kart racer before this.

Looks like utter shit. Been screaming for an open world RPG in middle earth for years, and they let these clowns get the license to make this turd instead.

Finally a good LOTR game.

I am still amazed nobody at the project meeting stood up and said: “How many people want to play as a fucking little twat Gollum? Let’s have fucking dwarf berserkers instead!”.

Still doesn’t look great but I’m hoping for the best… mainly because I’m always happy to see a big game from Germany doing well.
On the other hand their CEO absolutely deserves another flop on his hands.
