This new project was presented as The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, and in this one we will control said character in a video game of narrative adventure and action, which so far has only been confirmed for PS5, Xbox Series X and PC.
According to statements by studio CEO Carsten Fichtelmann, they are not relying on Peter Jackson’s hit Lord of the Rings films to make the video game, but instead are seeking a new perspective that has not been seen before, by taking advantage of the duality of the personalities of Sméagol y Gollum and using books as the primary source. In addition, he cited that as a graphics engine they use Unreal Engine 4 and from the images already published, we can see a very colorful art style with a touch cartoon.
