The next game from The Lord of the Rings franchise will be coming to the Switch, which is a departure from the previous style of game. Where the Shadow of Mordor games were full of epic battles, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum favors stealth and trickery. It’s developers have called it the “ultimate Gollum game,” an odd but intriguing title. The game will also feature large amounts of platforming, parkour, and an even more interesting feature for dialogue – players will have to repeatedly click on their chosen dialogue line to force that part of his character to the forefront.
The game certainly has a daring premise and if it manages to pull off a good story, it could be a hit. Add to this the announcement that Lord of the Rings: Gollum will release on Switch as well as PlayStation and Xbox consoles next year, and the game could see a huge audience. Developer Daedalic Entertainment has got my hopes up to this point – we’ll be looking forward to the game’s 2021 release.
