In this game, you will play as Gollum exploring the Middle-earth. Players will be hunting for that one ring that the Gollum lost to Bilbo Baggins while fighting off the dark lord, Sauron.
Players will also get an opportunity to react to situations as per Gollum or as his kinder self, Sméagol which will have consequences later in the game. Earlier, a few screenshots of the game were leaked that showcased a decision-based UI focusing on Gollum’s dual-personality. The player has to choose from different on-screen options based on the two different personalities.
For the unversed, the game is set just before The Fellowship of the Ring. The locations in the game will include Mordor, realm of Sauron, volcanic moonscape, iron orcish keeps, and more. The developer also promises that the players will encounter more familiar faces in the game.
Mark your calendars! 😉
After losing your precious, sneak and climb throughout Middle-earth as the iconic Gollum, choosing to either help him or Sméagol along the way…
