Gollum Gameplay

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum switches things up with the other LOTR games as it focuses not on serious combats, but on climbing parkour. Gollum will defeat enemies still (sneakily!).

Moreover, lead game designer Martin Wilkes mentions “However, this will not be easy and always come[s] with big risks. We want players to carefully weigh these encounters. After all, Gollum’s strengths lie in cunning, not combat“.

There wasn’t any specific type of gameplay in the trailers yet you can see Gollum swinging around the different locations in the game. These locations were made in detail as the environments in the maps look enticing to explore.

However, you may see Gollum as a mind-bending game, a critical thinking game, maybe with a hint of stealth and puzzles, and a narration-action game. Additionally, the game can be played solo, yet the developers may have other plans. We are yet to wait for what they had in mind! May it be a co-op or solo, we would enjoy playing this game, that’s for sure!
