Here's Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

You haven't aged a day.

Daedalic has released a new trailer for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, and given us a look at the developer's take on some well-known characters from J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy universe.

The video, below, shows off Gollum doing stealthy climby bits and bobs as we've seen him do before in previous trailers, but in a few new environments such as Mirkwood.

We then see the Lieutenant of Barad-dûr, aka Mouth of Sauron, for the first time:


Here's Thranduil, also known as the Elvenking, and the father of Legolas:


And here's our first look at Gandalf the Wizard:


The Lord of the Rings: Gollum takes its inspiration from Tolkien's books, not the movies, so don't expect any Hollywood movie star likenesses here. For more, check out Edwin's feature on how Lord of the Rings: Gollum reclaims the Middle-earth from before the movies.

The stealth-action adventure is set to release in 2022 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch.
