The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum Plot
The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum is based on the world-famous The Lord Of The Rings books, written by J.R.R Tolkien. Set in the fantasy world of Middle-Earth, the story will follow one of the most nefarious characters from the book. Gollum. The game will follow Gollum in his quest to find his “precious“. It is set during the first few chapters of the very first volume of The Lord Of The Rings, Fellowship Of The Ring. Players will take control of Gollum, as he moves through the recognizable location from the world of The Lord Of The Rings.
The story also places an important role on Sméagol, Gollum’s hobbit self. It will be up to the player if they want Gollum to take part in important story moments, or let Sméagol be the one leading. During gameplay, players will have to avoid danger entirely. They’ll have to distract the enemies they encounter, climb on platforms and move quietly. The game is going to be a stealth game with platforming elements, it’ll be interesting to see how they make a world so action-packed as The Lord Of The Rings works as a stealth game.
Just recently, Daedalic Entertainment revealed a new gameplay trailer for The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum. The gameplay trailer shows Gollum avoiding his enemies and climbing vertically. You can watch the gameplay trailer for The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum below.
