Following a delay, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is finally set to release on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC on May 25 in a standard edition and an aptly-named “Precious edition” that includes a few extra goodies. It’s also releasing on Switch at a later date. If you know you want to head back to Middle-earth, Lord of the Rings: Gollum preorders are available now at Amazon.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a brand new LOTR adventure that sees players exploring the world of Middle-earth through the eyes of the nefarious Gollum with gameplay focused on stealth and agility instead of combat.
Here’s everywhere you can preorder The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, plus all the pre-purchase bonuses available.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Preorder Bonuses
All The Lord of the Rings: Gollum preorders include a pack of six exclusive in-game emotes for Gollum. The bonus comes with physical and digital copies of the standard and Precious editions.
The action takes place during The Fellowship of the Ring storyline, although instead of following Frodo and friends, we’ll be treated to a story told solely through the eyes of Gollum.
Since Gollum isn’t well-versed with a sword or bow, you’ll find yourself slinking around in shadows instead of jumping headfirst into battle. The gangly creature excels at clambering around in the nooks and crannies of each level, and you’ll need to be careful about each step if you don’t want to be noticed. There are also a bunch of narrative sequences that can change the game based on your choice of dialogue. The Lord of the Ring: Gollum arrives on May 25, so we don’t have much longer to wait before we can go hands-on with the latest LOTR video game.
In the meantime, take a look at our list of the best Lord of the Rings games of all time. We’ll know soon if Gollum’s adventure joins the list.
