The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is probably one of the most curious games in our gamer calendar.

One of the reasons that could justify this postponement lies in the partnership that has been forged between the studio and Nacon, now responsible for putting the title in store. Naturally, one can imagine that the studio will not spit on a little more time to polish it.
As a reminder, in this action / infiltration game, you will be brought to live the events of Gollum’s life that we were not able to experience in the films (his capture by Sauron’s forces after his loss of the ring and its passage among the elves of the forest of Grand’Peur). Of course, it will be a question of survival given the puny body of the hobbit and you will have to use his malice and his agility to avoid or eliminate the various dangers in your path.
