Gollum with normal ish hair is...unsettling?

Maybe it’s just me but Gollum just looks... a bit weird (in the game, compared to, for example,movie gollum) to me

ID: gs9ke29

He looks like a Simpson’s character.

ID: gs8cx6s
ID: gs8c3zm

Could be a licensing issue as to why he doesn't look like movie gollum, or I suspect it's just Devs wanting to do their own take on the character.

ID: gs8ca88

They didn’t want to be connected to the movie. He’s more book accurate

ID: gs8ctda

Yeah that makes sense, cheers. Game could be pretty interesting though, guess we’ll see

ID: gsb8qb1

He looks like the blue aliens from Eiffel65s music video.

Yo listen up here’s a story

This reminds me of the “Superman: just the Clark Kent stuff” video game

I love LOTR and the shadow games but I’m still so confused about this game. Were we asking for this? I’m going to give it a chance but idk there are so many other characters that I think I might have chosen first.

ID: gs8lzp1

Exactly my thoughts. Fingers crossed it surprises us all.

ID: gs9z27r

I wouldn't mind a dark as hell Lord of the rings game where you murder just about everything.

ID: gsa9phi

A Witch King king game where we pursue the Fellowship, torturing villagers along the way for information.

ID: gs8ms51

I’m curious what leadership said no to, in order to say yes to this.

ID: gs9oqar

The team likely presented that they wanted to make a stealth game and management would have thought hell yeh I what I rekn happend

ID: gs8hhfq

Seriously, this is just bizarre to say the least.

ID: gs8j4de

I am just happy they are trying something unexpected. Might be a chance that they actually have some kind of „innovative“ plan for this rather than just some boring game leeching of the franchise.

ID: gsak7ch

I was honestly stoked at first because I was under the impression that it was an adventure game chronicling his adventures before becoming Gollum. Now that I know it's just a stealth game as Gollum I've lost all hype.

ID: gs9ool1

It looks awesome imo, we don't need another semi open world rpg/action adventure. Gollum is a cool character in the books and its nice to see a game that isn't based on those bloody movies for once.

ID: gsck15v

I'm going to hope this is such an outlandish idea for a LotR game that there must be a brilliant vision behind it to even get past the pitch. It's bold, let's see if it pays off.

Yaaaaa this game is gonna flop

8 : Anonymous2021/03/25 23:50 ID: gs8fy7e

What do we know about gameplay? Is it just sneaking around? Can he fight? Is it related to Shadow of Mordo


ID: gs8m9jt

I believe it’s a stealth based game and no it’s not related to the Shadow games.

ID: gs8y2yv

You sneak around smellin Ork ass and see which one smells best for gollum. Thats when you slide a poison berry into the hole

ID: gs9kbgc

And they say preordering is dead.

ID: gs91rao

Looks like Tomb Raider style. Check the map pan at the end, a lot of pillars and what looks like an obstacle course.

Gollum is my favorite character, I feel like I'm taking crazy pills for being stoked for this game. Most of the comments here don't seem excited at all

ID: gs9zas6

I'm excited, there's a lot they could do with him, especially given that he should have the ring...

ID: gsaa8nh

He doesn't, he is in Mordor, this is after he loses the ring.

ID: gsb3yuv

Gollum is my favorite character

This might be the first time my two eyes have ever seen this

Such a weird project. I suppose tolkien stans will be interested but just from the look of it I don't see much incentive to play a game like this. We already know Gollum's story and he's not the most compelling character to play as imo. He's not even a full fledged villain, he's just a tragic and pathetic character. I really hope I'm wrong tho, and I'll still be checking for this game.

ID: gsbano5

I am quite sure most of us hardcore Tolkien nerds are extremely trepidatious about this game, It seems so unnecessary. So much could be done in Tolkien's worlds, and a stealth based game featuring Gollum, I dont think is high up on anyones list lol.

ID: gsaafpu

I've been a fan of LOTR since my childhood and I'm the least exited for this game. Not only it looks quite bland but you hit it in the nail explaining why Gollum is not a good idea for a main character.

11 : Anonymous2021/03/26 01:55 ID: gs8uh02

Is this going to be a stealth game where you sneak around and evade combat? Meh... Styx 3 in LOTR universe.. I’ll pass

12 : Anonymous2021/03/26 01:03 ID: gs8ogog

Kinda gives me oddworld vibes.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:14 ID: gsasudb

Idk why, but the sounds of his hands and feet clapping would bother me throughout the whole game.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:27 ID: gsaukci

sigh we were on the cusp of greatness. We were so close. GOLLUM? Why

Seriously, I love Gollum and his actor and LOTR but of all the characters to make a game about???????? Shadow of Mordor games were great now we need a elf or dwarf perspective game. Imagine being a warrior under Thranduil, exploring Mirkwood....

17 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:40 ID: gsawd4r

Yeah this is whatever... but how about a Two Towers and Return of the King remake from those awesome PS2 games!

18 : Anonymous2021/03/26 11:28 ID: gsa2w8v

This looks just plain bad. It's one thing to have terrible animations or lack of mo-cap as a AAA dev but to have things as basic as textures being extremely low res and game models looking like pre-school clay sculptures is just embarrasing. There are indie games that are 7 years old that look better than this.

ID: gsa41mc

Too add, even the rigging is horrendous. Go to 0:21 and pause and use > to skip frame by frame and look at the deformation of the shoulder. This is BASIC rigging and weighting of your model that a AAA studio can't even get right and the fact it is overlooked and added to the trailer is even more worrying.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/26 09:57 ID: gs9weoh

I gotta be honest this is a terrible idea for a game. I absolutely can not bear to look at Gollum crawling around for the length of a full game. Yuck.

but imagine a Fellowship game though. Suckerpunch you busy?

21 : Anonymous2021/03/26 11:57 ID: gsa5e7v

idk how i feel about this game- this is the same publisher that did some shady shit with the Sinking Cities port recently, pirating it.

ID: gsadl14

That's bad. I have no intent in giving this publisher any of my money.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/26 02:04 ID: gs8viqa

who asked for this game?


24 : Anonymous2021/03/26 10:36 ID: gs9yz72

Worst trailer ever. If you have nothing to show, don't show it. Also your model looks like shit, like a drowned rat.

25 : Anonymous2021/03/26 13:16 ID: gsadiqv

It's like that Styx games right? If you into that, than this will be good. And it doesn't cover the same parts as the movies so it may be worth for people that like the lore.

I'm more interested in seeing the redesign, since is based on the books, so a lot of creatures may be completely different.

26 : Anonymous2021/03/26 13:18 ID: gsadrp1

I remember, when I was a wee lass, reading about characters like Elrond and Frodo and Legolas and Aragorn. Then coming across a character named Gollum and saying to myself, "Yeah, he's the one I want to be."

27 : Anonymous2021/03/26 13:50 ID: gsahnmx

Barely looks PS3 quality

28 : Anonymous2021/03/26 14:20 ID: gsallt8

What's the point of releasing another trailer if it barely shows anything and what it does show is presented poorly? I just want to see gameplay of this.

29 : Anonymous2021/03/26 14:27 ID: gsamk9b

Does anyone really want to dive deeper into Gollum lore and put themselves into Gollum's shoes? Seems like a bizarre choice.

30 : Anonymous2021/03/26 14:36 ID: gsanos0

Wasn't this game made 6 years ago already?

31 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:11 ID: gsb0ng5

Is Andy Serkis involved in this at all?

32 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:49 ID: gsb5qpw

keep it in the oven.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/26 17:58 ID: gsbeyk2

This terrible. Someone make an RPG set during the 1st or 2nd age and I'll be interested.

34 : Anonymous2021/03/26 22:00 ID: gscf8lt

The game is all about Gollum and they fucked up Gollum's character design. Ok then. I completely understand needing to differ from the movie version but this just looks...weird and bad.

35 : Anonymous2021/03/26 23:41 ID: gsctp7h

If Gollum can get his own can I.

(What is this...)
