The action-adventure game will be available for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on May 25th, while a Nintendo Switch version is set to launch later in the year. Based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic trilogy, the game invites players to step into the world of Middle-earth and experience the gripping tale of one of its most enigmatic characters – Sméagol, also known as Gollum.

Fans of the iconic lore can get a sneak peek at the gameplay and hear insights from the developers during a special showcase at 5.30 pm GMT / 6.30 pm CET on Twitch today. The event will first look at the game’s stunning graphics and innovative gameplay mechanics inspired by Tolkien’s rich universe.

The game will be available on PC, PlayStation4, PlayStation5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. Console players can also look forward to a physical edition of the game.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
