Sometimes the industry reveals a game that you just don’t know how to feel about. It’s the kind you hear about but never really follow. You start thinking about playing it but you’d rather save up money for the next big release. Then one day, you just end up giving it a try because you heard some great reviews. I had that experience with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.
While I did love the original Lord of the Rings film trilogy, I would not call myself a die-hard fan of the franchise. What I love about it is the lore and mythology that J. R. R. Tolkien created. This game had such a unique system that I still adore it to this day. It was one of the biggest surprises for me when I decided to buy it. I couldn’t wait to see what else they have planned after Middle-Earth: Shadow of War was released. Well, I didn’t expect a game about Gollum. We even got a short teaser for the upcoming project.
It is a very brief trailer that teases the side of Middle Earth we will explore as the titular Gollum. All we know is that it will be a stealth-action game. Makes absolute sense, as Gollum won’t be running around taking down Orcs with a sword. It is a nice touch to show Mount Doom in the distance, as Gollum sets out for this journey. I am once again unsure of how to feel about this game. Yet, that is mostly due to the lack of gameplay to get a feeling for how we control the iconic character. Also, I wonder if they will get Andy Serkis to reprise his role from the films.
