Let’s hope it won’t last next year…
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum , which we heard about the postponement before, has been postponed again. The new date of the game, which is expected to be released on September 1, 2022, is uncertain for now, but it may be released in December. Details are here.
Announced in March 2019, the game is being developed by Deadalic Entertainment for PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series. With the announcement made in May, it was said that it will be released on September 1, 2022 in Nacon broadcasting. This date is no longer valid.
The Lord of the Rings: We’ll Have to Wait a Little Longer for Gollum
In the post made by the developer studio on the Twitter account of the game , it is primarily thanks to the patience and support of the players, and it is mentioned that the developer team is working hard to provide an impressive experience.
In the continuation, they say they aim to tell a story in a way that will meet the expectations of the community and honor JRR Tolkien’s vision, and they are pushing the release date a few months to deliver the best possible experience. While a clear date is not given for now, we need to wait for another announcement to be made in the near future.
In fact, if you look at it, this decision to postpone could be a good development. Because, the visuality of the game, which we encountered during the recent Nacon Connect, received a lot of negative criticism from the players. The period of a few months obtained can bring about a positive improvement in visuality. We will be following the developments.
The Lord of the Rings: About Gollum
We will learn everything from the years of captivity in the Dark Tower to the time next to the Mirkwood Elves in the action game that will stay true to the story written by JRR Tolkien and tell the unknown about the character of Gollum.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will mostly be a war-free game, according to Chief Designer Martin Wilkes. Since there will be no use of weapons, you will have to eliminate your enemies who come in your way, not directly, but through stealth by distracting them. However, there will be times when you can take advantage of your friends’ abilities as well.
Let’s not forget that your style and the decisions you make will also have an impact on Gollum in terms of gameplay. You will directly decide whether the dark side or Smeagol will win in the personality clash where he faces Smeagol.
