“Daedalic Entertainment and NACON would like to thank all players for their patience and support so far,” the publisher began in an update.
“During the past several years, the team has been working hard to share our vision of a remarkable story, set in a breathtaking world, filled with magic and wonder. We are dedicated to meeting our community’s expectations and uncovering the untold story of Gollum in a way that honors the vision of J.R.R. Tolkien.
“That being said, in order to deliver the best possible experience, we have decided to push the release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum by a few months. We’ll update with an exact timing in the near future.
“Daedalic and NACON are grateful for their passionate community and will be happy to share this unique adventure with them soon.”
With J.R.R. Tolkien’s universe to be “faithfully represented” thanks to a partnership with Middle-earth Enterprises, after losing his precious ring to Bilbo Baggins you can expect to set out on a perilous journey as Gollum, who decides to leave the Misty Mountains in an effort to retrieve it.
This stealth-action adventure will see you climb, leap and sneak your way past dangers or into advantageous spots, as you battle with Gollum’s duelling personalities to determine whether his darker side takes over or if there is a spark of reason left in what once was Sméagol.
From the mountains of Mordor to the Mines of Moria and Mirkwood Forest, you will have the chance to encounter well-known characters from the books as well as new potential allies and antagonists.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide, with a release window unconfirmed.
