In the conversation the creators of the game said that the project will be released in 2021 on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC, eredet Chronicle.info with reference to gagadget.com.
In addition to the platform, the developers revealed more details about the main characters of the game — the Gollum. The team decided to create their own version of the character because in the books there is a fairly accurate description.
“Tolkien initially did not give exact dimensions of Gollum. On the first illustration it’s gigantic! He’s like a monster emerging from the swamp” — the art Director Mathias Fisher.
At the same time, Daedalic will not upset the players who only saw the movies, and at least Gollum isn’t an exact copy “cinematic” of the incarnation. It is possible that the developers did take the version from canadaplace books, but will make its own adjustments.
Fisher also confirmed that The Lord of The Rings: Gollum appears Nazgul (Nazgûl), the Ghost ring. Unfortunately, the developers are not told what role the character takes in the game.
Gameplay The Lord of The Rings: Gollum will be the stealth-action game. As the head of Gollum are fighting two personalities, the developers decided to enter the appropriate mechanics.
“It’s not just a choice to be Smeagol or Gollum, because Gollum as a subject, it is not easy. Every person is attacked by another, and everyone should protect themselves. You can have two, three or four of the conflict in each Chapter that will lead to a final decision. And in this moment, for example, the final decision will be more difficult for sméagol, if you’ve always fought for the side of Gollum,” he told game designer Martin Wilkes.
Finally CEO of Daedalic Carsten Fichtelmann confirmed that the Studio got the contract for the long term. Because the plans to make another two or three games, but already on other characters.
