The Lord of the Rings: Gollum trailer, release date, gameplay and more

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is an upcoming stealth game from Daedalic Entertainment. Taking the role of the corrupted hobbit Gollum, you’ll sneak through the dangerous land of Mordor, bypassing orcs, ringwraiths and all sorts of other dangerous creatures as you go. Given how many Lord of the Rings games we’ve seen in the last two decades, it’s hardly unprecedented to have another one, and yet The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is unusual in one way: It was one of our first looks at PS5 graphics.

While LOTR: Gollum won’t be exclusive to the PS5, it gained some notoriety for giving us our very first screenshots of PS5 graphics. Once you get past the novelty of the screenshots, though, there’s a very real game underneath, which will explore one of our favorite fictional characters of the 20th century. Here’s what we know about Lord of the Rings: Gollum so far, and what we’d still like to learn.

  • PS5: Release date, price, specs, games and more
  • Xbox Series X: Release date, price, pre-order, controller and more
  • All of the PS5 games we know about

As mentioned above, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum gained a lot of traction by representing our first glimpse at PS5 graphics. Sort of. As we discussed in our article on the topic, it’s unlikely that the screenshots actually came from a PS5 build of the game, probably originating on a PC instead. Still, the game will indeed be out on PS5, and showed us screenshots before almost any other PS5 game, so it has that going for it.
