This really is the week that'll lift the lid off the next generation. Microsoft's Xbox Series X unveiling of third-party games will take place later this week on Thursday, but publisher Daedalic Entertainment has already beaten it to the punch. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been announced for PlayStation 5, arriving next year, and here's your first look at the title with lots of new screenshots.

As you can see, we get multiple glimpses of Gollum itself alongside a rather scary shot of four gigantic spiders before pulling out with a shot of Mordor. Is that Mount Doom in the background? We think so. It even looks like you'll be able to make choices and dialogue decisions at points in the game. The platform these screenshots have been pulled from isn't stated, but since The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is only planned for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, we can be sure that the final experience will look somewhat similar to the images before you on Sony's system.

Are you impressed by these screenshots? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
