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 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.
