It shouldn’t come as much of a shock, but German developer Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a PlayStation 5 game. The title was quietly announced last year, with a 2021 release date attached. At the time, the organisation said that it would deploy on “all relevant console platforms”. Now, a new EDGE feature confirms that it’s a “stunning next-gen adventure”.
The ambitious effort is being created in collaboration with Middle-earth Enterprises, and promises a “narrative-driven experience”. “We tell Gollum's story from a perspective never seen before, in any storytelling medium, all the while staying true to the legendary books of J.R.R. Tolkien,” Daedalic CEO Carsten Fichtelmann explained last year. Hopefully more details are forthcoming.
