First official teaser trailer from Daedalic Entertainment’s The Lord of the Rings: Gollum doesn’t reveal so much about the game, but at least its a good sign to tell us that there are more to be revealed in the near future.

The new teaser, which has been shared out of the blue, shows off Gollum stepping out of a cave (probably Shelob’s place) and looking towards a volcano eruption on a mountain, which might be the Mount Doom. As mentioned before, it’s not the thing we would’ve to expect from Daedalic almost a year after the game’s announcement, but this might be a clue for the game’s attendance at this week’s Opening Night Live showcase.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a stealth adventure that puts you in the shoes of Gollum in a dangerous journey set before the events of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship movie. While Gollum is the evil personality of the character, you will sometimes control Smeagol, the good side, as well. There will be a moment in the game that you should make a decision; either accepting the guidance of Smeagol or following the unfair rules of Gollum. Not much has been shared about the gameplay elements and story of the game yet, but it’s core mechanics will be based on the stealth genre.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum targets a 2021 release on PS5 and Xbox Series X. The visual quality of the game is yet to be revealed through the gameplay trailers, but based on what we’ve seen from the in-game screenshots, it’s not going to be a benchmark for the next-gen consoles.

Daedalic Entertainment is a German development team with almost 90 employees that have already developed dozens of titles in different genres. The Deponia series is probably their most notable work so far.
