Gollum's original release date is revealed. The new Lord of the Rings game will be released on May 25th.

We have known the movies of the lords of the rings and its games. I have not seen it yet The Hobbit but I guess this is the first time that we are interested in the story of Gollum, the character who followed the precious until the end.

For better or for worse .

The release of the Lord of the Rings – Gollum game is set for May 25, 2023 after several postponements over several months.

Although the game is designed to be ported to almost all game consoles, no PC specification required to run the game has yet been mentioned on Steam.

Gollum initial release date

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been in pre-production since early 2019 and was scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2021.

Then comes a series of postponement of the game. First to September 1, 2022 and then after that date, the game page on Steam mentions unknown about the release date of Lord of the Rings: Gollum.

At the latest news, the game's release date is 2023, this year without further details.

Fans who have been waiting for this game for a long time will find that the development of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has not been abandoned. With all these postponements, should we continue to believe in it 2 years later?

Game Description Lord of the Rings – Gollum

He is athletic and agile, devious and cunning. Driven by a desire to once again hold what he has lost in his hands, Gollum is one of the most fascinating characters in The Lord of the Rings ™ world.

He has witnessed things no one could imagine, he has survived events no one would dare to mention. Tortured by his split personality, he can turn out to be vicious and evil as Gollum, but sociable and cautious as Sméagol.

While Gollum's quest is vital to JRR Tolkien's story, some aspects of it have yet to be recounted in detail. Discover this story with Lord of the Rings ™: Gollum ™, from his slavery under the Dark Tower to his stay with the Elves of the Black Forest.

Use stealth, agility and cunning to survive and face the obstacles that await you. Climb, jump and fight your way through dangers and bad moves.

Gollum may not be a fighter, but it's not uncommon for him to assassinate a reckless foe when the opportunity presents itself, or to get rid of them in more creative and villainous ways.

The decisions you make and the way you play have a direct influence on Gollum's personality: in constant struggle between Gollum and Sméagol, it's up to you to choose whether Gollum's dark side wins or stays a spark of reason in what was once called Sméagol. One mind, two egos, you decide!

Will Lord of the Rings Gollum come to PC, PS4, PS5 and XBOX?

The lord of the rings is planned for almost all consoles. Exactly it will come on Ps4, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, Ps 5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One .

There's no way you'll miss this game.

What to expect on Gollum

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be an action-adventure game with the story of one of the secondary characters who marked the saga: Gollum.

The story of Gollum from the developer studio is based on the Lord of the Rings novel written by JRR Tolkiens.

Players will be able to explore Middle-earth as Gollum, according to the original author's vision.

Gollum is not a fighter strictly speaking but his obsession with the “Precious” allows him to survive in a hostile environment.

The gameplay of the game will include elements of stealth and platforming in an open environment.

My opinion

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is not the game that will attract me if I did not know the saga.

Personally Gollum is not a character that I would like to embody in a game, but maybe I will change my mind after seeing all the Lord of the Rings movies.

I will definitely play it for the story rather than the character.

The game is scheduled to launch this year 2023 after several postponements since 2021. This game is for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch owners.

Archives – Should we believe it like 2 years ago?

It is not uncommon to encounter postponements of the launch of a project beyond the initial date announced in the industry of video games (or computer science lol).

To make so many reports, either the team is super passionate and wants to make a perfect and perfect game, or there is a bug that erased everything or my last theory the lack of funding.

I'd rather trust the official version via this tweet.

Here is what this tweet says:

First of all, we would like to thank you all for your patience and support so far. Over the past few years, our team has worked hard to bring you a remarkable story set in a stunning world filled with magic and wonder.

We are committed to meeting the expectations of our community and uncovering the untold story of Gollum in a way that honors JRR Tolkiens' vision.

That being said, in order to provide the best experience possible, we have decided to push back the release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum for a few months. We will let you know the exact date in the near future.

We are grateful to our passionate community and look forward to sharing this unique adventure with you!


According to this tweet, the reason for all these postponements joins my first hypothesis which is that the team is super passionate and wants to make a perfect and nickel game .

There's nothing wrong with that as long as the development hasn't been abandoned.

In my opinion, this last postponement will really be the last because the team seems to really decide to launch the game this year 2023 according to the rumors.

The game will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and for the Nintendo Switch.
