What was Smeagol doing between The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring?
That Lord of the Rings: Gollum launching later in 2023, it will explore the mind and madness of the corrupt Hobbit Smeagol in the time between his loss of the One Ring and the events of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
In a trailer shown Thursday during a Nacon livestream showcase, we see Gollum working with and against two opposing forces, including a young Gandalf and an emissary from the evil lord Sauron, both in search of the Ring. It’s a tall order to make Smeagol/Gollum a sympathetic figure, but that’s where this tale seems to be headed.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was first announced in 2019 and was expected in September 2022, but Daedalic Entertainment delayed it back in July.
Although Nacon PR has only given 2023 as a release window for the action-adventure, the company told investors back in January that the game would launch sometime between April and September 2023. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum launches on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
