The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Screenshots Emerge Online

Smeagol's going to have quite the time conversing with himself.

Just over a year ago in March 2019, Daedalic Entertainment revealed they were developing a game based on Gollum from The Lord of the Rings. Now we have our first look at the game.

You can see several screenshots below from The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. If you follow the link from the tweet through to the screenshot database, you can find a few more screenshots, showing the fiery Mount Doom in Mordor, and several other gothic-looking locations.

These screenshots for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum certainly look intriguing. One screenshot appears to show Gollum conversing within himself, which you'll know all too well if you've read the J.R.R. Tolkien novels or seen the Peter Jackson movie adaptations of The Lord of the Rings.

Earlier this year in January, Daedalic revealed several new details about their game. It'll feature the father of the elf Legolas as a supporting character, and the dreaded Ringwraiths will be showing up in some capacity (probably to hunt Gollum).

When Daedalic Entertainment first revealed The Lord of the Rings: Gollum last year, it was one of the first next-gen games to be officially announced. The game is currently being developed for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, as well as PC, with a target release window of 2021.

Something that naturally springs to mind is Microsoft's next-gen games showcase for the Xbox Series X taking place on May 7. Could this showcase include a grand unveiling of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum for the first time?
