That’s right, Lord Of The Rings is coming back to the world of video games with the upcoming The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum. But when is The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum release date?
What’s the game actually about? Can you pre order the title? We’re here to break down everything you need to know about the first Lord Of The Rings title since Middle Earth: Shadow Of War, and explain exactly what it is you’ll be doing in the game.
As Arwen would say:
‘Your time will come. You will face the same Evil, and you will defeat it.‘
The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum Release Date
As you can see in the above gameplay trailer, The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum promises to be a much more subdued look at The Lord Of The Rings universe.
Lord Of The Rings: Gollum is a story-based action RPG in which you play as the titular Smeagol, sneaking your way through the action happening throughout Middle Earth itself. When compared directly to the previous Lord Of The Rings title, Middle Earth: Shadow Of War, it’s an extreme departure, featuring none of that game’s signature stylish combat or gameplay mechanics.
Lord Of The Rings: Gollum was originally announced in 2019 for a 2021 release date, but was pushed back due to circumstances outside of the developer’s control. It’s now launching on September 1st, 2022, with a Switch edition launching on November 30, 2022.

Obviously, we’ll have more links closer to the time for PlayStation Store, the Nintendo Store, and the Microsoft Store, but until then this is all we have. What with Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power and The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum, the series is having quite the year. Let’s just hope it’s a good one.
