Fans of the movie The Lord Of The Rings were surprised when The Lord Of The Ring: Gollum game was announced, and that it would tell the story of the beloved and shocking character everyone. Gollum. He is an extremely iconic character of the series, but no one expected him to have a game. It will be an action-adventure game that will focus on his journey through Mordor for the search of the ring. So while a Gollum game doesn’t exactly sound like an amazing idea, it should be at least interesting, and the game will tell more about his story.
In Search Of The Precious
The Lord Of The Rings is probably one of the biggest franchises out there, and it comes as no surprise that video games inspired by it would come out. Probably one of the most popular games about The Lord Of The Rings is Shadow Of Mordor, and Shadow Of War.
These games take place in the universe of The Lord of the Rings, but they are not canon. And now, The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum, will tell the story about one of the most iconic characters of the series, Gollum. There isn’t much we know about him, except that he was corrupted by the ring, and searches for it all across the lands. And in this game, we will dive deeper into the story of Gollum, and see all the troubles he went through.
The game will focus mainly on stealth mechanics, since as we all know, Gollum isn’t much of a fighter, so when playing as him, it will probably be important to try and avoid conflict. However, it isn’t always possible to avoid fighting, so sometimes Gollum will be forced to kill. But from what little information there is about the game, it seems that movement will be the main focus of the game, as you will need to traverse through dangerous places while avoiding conflict, and in Mordor, everything can prove to be dangerous.
Another curious aspect of the game is that the decision you make along the game will influence Gollum’s personality. As most fans know, Gollum has another personality called Smeagol, and your decisions will affect which of these personalities take control. This is an interesting mechanic, as it will make you as a player decide how Gollum will act through the game, and will also make players think before making certain decisions.
Overall, while not a lot of fans were extremely happy with a Gollum game, it might prove to be a pretty interesting game. Being able to know more about his journey is interesting, and the fact that your actions will have a weight on which of his two personalities will develop more is a pretty interesting and engaging mechanic.
This game might be similar to games like Thief since the focus is to avoid fighting. The game is set to release sometime in 2022, and it will be available on almost every platform.
