Daedalic Entertainment has reaffirmed that its action-adventure game The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be coming to next-gen consoles including PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X alongside PC in 2021.
This is what the studio told Edge magazine for its February 2020 issue, which has a number of interviews with key developers that reveal the first new details about the game since its announcement back in March 2019.
For starters, Daedalic has set out to invent its own version of main character Gollum rather than follow the look given to him in Peter Jackson’s movies. “Tolkien didn’t give a size reference for Gollum to begin with,” art director Mathias Fischer told Edge. “So in the first illustrations, he’s gigantic! He’s like a monster emerging from the swamp.” Daedalic hasn't yet revealed what Gollum will look like in the game.
