German developer Daedalic has confirmed it’s working on a new title in The Lord of the Rings series for unnamed consoles and platforms relevant for the time of release.
It will act as a prequel to the trilogy of books in which Daedalic’s license draws inspiration from, as opposed to Peter Jackson’s film series.
We don’t yet know if we’ll be playing as Gollum himself, but it will show what the creepy creature was up to prior to biting off Frodo’s fingers on Mount Doom.
Daedelic is known primarily for its point ‘n’ click adventure titles, so this likely won’t be as action-packed as Middle Earth: Shadow of War or Warner Bros’ other efforts.
We’ll likely find out more about the next cycle of consoles at E3 2019 with Microsoft saying it “will go big” at this year’s show.
