NACON and Daedalic Entertainment Creating The Lord of the Rings: Gollum


Both NACON and Daedalic Entertainment have signed a co-publishing and distribution agreement for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum.

In this title, players will take on the role of the titular Gollum, who sets out to chase the only thing precious to him. Along the way, players will sneak, climb, and leap past dangers or into advantageous spots. His split personality means that it’s up to players to decide whether his dark side takes over or if the spark of reason is still there.

To capture the universe of this game, a partnership with Middle-earth Enterprises, which holds the adaptation rights to J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel series, has been created.

The title was originally announced in Spring of 2019. For those who are just learning about the title, get up to speed with the following teaser:
