Happy Monday everyone!
I can’t believe it’s the first of April already! The year is already going by so fast… I can barely keep up with the games that are coming out this year, and here I am writing a post about a game that may not be slated until 2021.
Lord of the Rings is a universally acclaimed franchise that many geeks enjoy together. Even if you are not that big of a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s world, you probably understand the phrases, “Not all who wander are lost” and “You shall not pass!”
The original movie trilogy was a blockbuster, Amazon has green-lit a television series, and there are still books coming out with Tolkien’s works and worlds. Video games have been created to help fans immerse themselves even further in Middle-Earth, from Lord of the Rings Online to Shadows of Mordor. Now there is a new game in the works starring the creature that coined the term, “My Precious.”
Although this is early in development, considering the company says we can expect the game in 2021, the idea of a video game starring Gollum is intriguing. He’s a wretched little creature whose mind is ensnared by the One Ring, so it’ll be interesting to see where this game will take him. Will it start with finding the ring? Will he already be the Gollum creature that we know at the beginning of the game, with the voices developing inside his head?
In the books and movies, his ending is not happy. Will the game allow us to change his fate? Would fans want the game to do that?
