Now Playing: The Lord of the Rings: Gollum | Story Trailer

Nacon also released a trailer to accompany the game's new release date.

The latest trailer focuses on story elements, offering a look at some of the game's characters, with some gameplay sprinkled throughout.

As its name suggests, this game follows Gollum on an adventure that takes place between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It's an action-adventure game with stealth and platforming mechanics, as shown in the recent trailers.

In 2022, Nacon released a gameplay trailer for Gollum, but the community's response to it was mostly negative. Much of the criticism was aimed at the game's graphical fidelity, while others poked fun at the gameplay itself. Following the poor reception to that trailer, Nacon delayed the game from its September 1 release date, explaining that it wanted to "deliver the best possible experience."
