The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been delayed by “a few months”, co-publishers Daedalic Entertainment and Nacon announced on Monday.
“During the past several years, the team has been working hard to share our vision of a remarkable story, set in a breathtaking world, filled with magic and wonder,” its publishers said.
“We are dedicated to meeting our community’s expectations and uncovering the untold story of Gollum in a way that honors the vision of J.R.R. Tolkien.
“That being said, in order to deliver the best possible experience, we have decided to push the release of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum by a few months. We’ll update with an exact timing in the near future.”
Taking place in parallel to the events described in The Fellowship of the Ring, Gollum is a story-driven action RPG in which players embark on a quest to retrieve the One Ring.
The first The Lord of the Rings: Gollum gameplay trailer was released earlier this month.
“Torn by his fractured psyche, players will have to manage both Sméagol and Gollum on a journey that will take him across famous locales, revealing more about his time as a slave below the Dark Tower and his stray with the Elves of Mirkwood, as he interacts with iconic characters from the series,” reads the blurb accompanying the trailer.
