Gollum from The Lord of the Rings is being teased at the Game Awards

Daedalic uploaded a short video of Gollum coming from the shadows to assault an armoured orc in a tweet from the game’s official Twitter account earlier today. Before presenting the TGA logo, the trailer suddenly cuts to a date—December 9th. The tweet’s text is as follows: “In the shadows, there’s something… On December 9, watch #TheGameAwards! #GollumGame #LordOfTheRings”

What is Geoff Keighley’s secret stash? Gameses! In addition to enough “World Premieres” to create a fellowship, the host is expected to reveal fresh details about The Lord of the Rings: Gollum at The Game Awards on December 9.

Over the past few years, the Keighley-hosted event has become a popular spot to showcase trailers for upcoming games, including a first look at The Outer Worlds at the 2018 show and a reveal trailer for Perfect Dark in 2020.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was first announced in 2019 with a planned 2021 release. But, like a lot of launch dates in the pandemic-era, the game was pushed back to 2022. The game is set to launch on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Switch. Though it has a loose window of Fall 2022, we don’t yet have a firm release date. We similarly don’t know a ton about the game at this point, but it seems that player choice will be a big part of the gameplay.

“You already have that big conflict in the character, two voices talking to you continuously,” Carsten Fichtelman, Daedalus CEO and co-founder told The Hollywood Reporter in 2019. “Which means there is a good reason there are decisions to make in the game: the Smeagol decisions or the Gollum decision.” Fichtelman also stated that the game is set prior to the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s books.

After a busy 2000s, the 2010s were fairly light on video games set in Middle-earth. Though the first half saw a few releases, including two LEGO games and the blockbuster Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, the second half of the decade brought us a sequel, Shadow of War, and very little else. But, with Amazon’s (reportedly very expensive) The Lord of the Rings series expected to debut next year, it seems likely that a big brand revival is just over the Misty Mountains.

Gollum has had his own game in the works for a while now, focusing on the years that Smeagol owned the ring and the adventures he got up to. From the gameplay we’ve seen it looks like Gollum will be doing a lot of sneaking around and hiding. Plus, some internal in-fighting between his dueling personalities of Gollum and Smeagol. No word yet on a finger-biting finisher.
