NACON and Daedalic Entertainment have announced a release date for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, but confirmed that it will come to Nintendo Switch “later this year.”
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 “later this year.” The game will release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on 25th May 2023.
