The game launch window for 2021 was first announced in 2019. This is the first important word we've received since last August, when Gollum's developers talked to IGN about the game's stealth mechanics and branched narrative .
The Gollum-focused adventure will combine the Prince of Persia's parkour with stealth mechanics. The game's chief designer, Martin Wilkes, told IGN that players will mostly sneak through the levels, but will also be tasked with taking down some enemies.
"The game mixes stealth with vertical climbing parkour," Wilkes told IGN last year. "If you want a reference, you can consider it similar to Prince of Persia. It is mainly a game without combat, but Gollum will be able to sneak enemies down. However, this will not be easy and always comes with great risks. players carefully evaluate these encounters. After all, Gollum’s strength lies in cunning, not combat. "

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is one of many Lord of the Rings projects currently under development. Amazon is working on a TV series that takes place thousands of years before The Hobbit. In addition, never-before-seen writings from Middle-earth by J.R.R. Tolkien is being released in a new book in June.
The actors and artists of The Lord of the Rings also recently met to support a fundraiser to buy the house where JRR Tolkien wrote The Hobbit and some of The Lord of the Rings. The fundraiser would transform the house in a Tolkien sanctuary, but has not yet reached its goal.
Petey Oneto is a freelance writer for IGN who is very, very excited about all this Lord of the Rings stuff. Please don't be like The Hobbit movies.
