The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has set a firm release date of May 25, 2023.

On March 23, developer Daedalic Entertainment finally revealed the release date for their new take on the Lord of the Rings character. Gollum will finally hide in the shadows in a few months on May 25, so it won’t be long before we see what horrors Mordor has in store for Smeagol.

This is the first time we’ve had a firm release date for Gollum since the game’s release was pushed back to September 2022. At the time, Daedalic said the new game would be pushed back “a few months”, but with a release in May. date The planned release was delayed by more than six months.

However, when the new Lord of the Rings game arrives, it will be released on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One platforms. There’s currently a Nintendo Switch version in development, but Daedalic only says the release is “slated for later this year.”

If you’re unfamiliar with Gollum’s big game outing, you control the character as he battles with his split personalities: Gollum and Smeagol. The creature isn’t much of a fighter, so it’s up to you to get Gollum past the orcs and other threats in search of the One Ring.

It’s a lonely old adventure for poor old Gollum, but at least he’s got himself to keep him company. You can read our previous Gollum interview to find out why Daedalic finds Gollum such a compelling character to build an entire game on.
