Default The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum


It shouldn’t come as much of a shock, but German developer Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a PlayStation 5 game. The title was quietly announced last year, with a 2021 release date attached. At the time, the organisation said that it would deploy on “all relevant console platforms”. Now, a new EDGE feature confirms that it’s a “stunning next-gen adventure”.

The ambitious effort is being created in collaboration with Middle-earth Enterprises, and promises a “narrative-driven experience”. “We tell Gollum's story from a perspective never seen before, in any storytelling medium, all the while staying true to the legendary books of J.R.R. Tolkien,” Daedalic CEO Carsten Fichtelmann explained last year. Hopefully more details are forthcoming.

Okay, i really loved the latest Shadow of Mordor games and whilst i'd love to play them both back to back soon and definitely wanted a next gen game exploring all the lands of Middle Earth but as Gollum? Hmm. Well, let's see when a trailer lands too. Hopefully it'll be better than my lowered expectations.

So is this PS5 exclusive? As it seems just one console mentioned.

Can't wait to spend 70 hours crawling on walls, hiding from orcs, stalking hobbits, and looking for raw fish.

I haven't played any of the LOTR games. I love the movies though. I might have to check this one out.

So this is going to be a stealth game where you cross Middle Earth after losing the One Ring during the events of The Hobbit before eventually being ensnared and tortured by Sauron's henchmen? Sounds good.

Maybe this could be an Elder Scrolls killer since Bethesda is Bethetic.

Personally i don't see this particular entry doing that but allegedly they have 3 titles in total planned including this. So i'm hopeful another entry might be better served for that. I actually quite like Skyrim though and they're hard at work on Elder Scrolls 6 for next gen i believe.

I wouldn't mind a Open world game based on Isildur truthfully. The end of it is essentially the battle with Sauron and cutting the one ring from his hand.

I think that wouldn't be too bad depending on how much leeway they actually get to craft his story their own way. Showing him off as a noble warrior and doing everything right up until that final battle and then show a cutscene of how powerful the ring was at corrupting him and by then you basically have the original LOTR movies.

Maybe. When you put it this way it actually sounds like it has potential.

I just can't envision a character like Gollum engaging in combat the same way Talion does in Shadow of Mordor. If they want to make the game epic and have some form of combat with the Gollum character, I suspect they'll either:
  • Make it an all-stealth game with little-to-no combat.
  • Reinvent Gollum so that he can and does stand toe-to-toe with his enemies. Make him swole.
  • Keep the game story-based like Telltale or something.
  • More than likely, they'll make a new character you play and make Gollum an NPC that follows you (or you follow him) and it's your goal to protect him the whole way. The story would still focus on Gollum, but through the POV of the character you play. Then pretty much anything goes.

Yeah, another would be maybe Gandalf working his way up to being the Grey Wizard. Or hell why not a game through the Eyes of Sauron where your goal is to forge the one ring. To build your palace in Mordor, to actually corrupt the wraiths build your armies. This is a world that has so much untapped possibility that like Shadow of Mordor 1 & 2 you could create many good games.

I'd like an open world to explore as Gollum. That would be really cool.

I still think the ultimate open world game would be The Lord of the Rings: The One Ring. Have it be about you, as Frodo, trying to bring the ring to Mordor. But here's the catch. With a vast open world, you literally gotta choose how to get it there, by any means necessary. From the foothills of the Shire to the flames of the Mount of Fire.

This PS5 game being a Narrative driven story game, I imagine there won't be much freedom to explore, but be led on a linear path in levels. I hope I'm surprised and it's more open world.

Sounds good. Choosing your own path after splitting with the Fellowship would be cool, and maybe that's how the game could begin.

With the Shadow of Mordor games, that was a nice hint of an open map game connected by narrow paths, but a bit linear in the fact that each map leads to a different map, rather than being one giant open landscape.
