Game News The Lord of the Rings Gollum: the joint release with the series The Rings of Power compromised?
Fans of JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings have never been so excited to reach back-to-school season. Indeed, the iconic fantasy universe must kill two birds with one stone with the release of a new game and the launch of a new series on the Amazon Prime Video streaming platform. A precise calendar had even been set up so that the influence of one could benefit the other!
- The return to grace of Tolkien’s work?
- Gollum will have a hard time leaving Mordor
The return to grace of Tolkien’s work?
Last May, more than three years after the initial revelation of the project, Daedalic Entertainment and Nacon finally revealed the release date for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum game. ! Chance of the calendar which was not really one, the adventure as new as it is intriguing – since making us embody Gollum / Smeagol during his escape from the infernal lands of Mordor – had the chance to come out barely a day before the broadcast from the Amazon Prime Video series, Rings of Power. A perfect communication operation on paper!
Again recently, on the occasion of the Nacon Connect event of the French publisher, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum had passed a headfor a few seconds, to release a trailer showcasing Gollum’s infiltration abilities, which are highly needed in his quest for survival and his journey to get his hands on — or rather, the finger — on his precious ring. However, this new video extract did not end with a reminder of the release date which, for once, should have put us on the way. Unfortunately, and like many games before it, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum must go through the “report” box before leaving this demonic prison that are the dungeons of Barad-dûr.
Gollum will have a hard time leaving Mordor
At the sight of the presentations dedicated to this unprecedented adventure in the skin of Gollum, we knew that the former Hobbit by the name of Smeagol was embarking on a more than dangerous enterprise. Daedalic Entertainment and Nacon confirm this to us today since the title will need a few additional months of development so that the journey goes smoothly and ” that it meets the expectations of the community “. It is therefore, not without a pinch in the heart, that the teams working relentlessly and passionately on the project announced the news through the studio’s Twitter account.
The joint release between the series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and The Lord of the Rings: Gollum unfortunately will not take place. Even more sadly, this is a fairly substantial postponement of a few months – and not a few weeks, which could still have allowed the title to continue to capitalize on the series – without the studio telling us the future release window. The teams ask for the patience of the community and state that a new exact date will be communicated shortly.
