What do you think of when you think Lord of the Rings‘Gollum? Is it parkour? It’s totally parkour, isn’t it?
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum He recently had a new trailer at E3, but less than a minute long, and mostly focused on the story, didn’t give us much more of an eye to the game. This new trailer, although it has a fairly important warning of PRE-ALPHA FOOTAGE on top, looks pretty good, with environments from Mirkwood, the Mines of Moria and Mordor. Characters also include The Mouth of Sauron (which is a type that speaks for Sauron, not the actual Sauron’s mouth) and Thranduil, King of the Elves of Mirkwood and the father of Legolas.
And, yes, there is a lot of parkour. Gollum crawls, jumps, climbs, and climbs his way around as he tries to retrieve the Ring (you know that). It’s a story that hasn’t really been dealt with in the movies – and the game itself is specifically based on the book license – but covers Gollum’s adventures as he tracks the Ring’s journey from its cave, away with Bilbo, to the Commune, and thence, the events of The Lord of the Rings.
However, there is still no definitive release date. The last we heard was that the game has been delayed from 2021 to 2022. It’s definitely coming to Change, though!
