The Lord of the Rings Gollum is one of the most anticipated games for the new generation of consoles, but sadly we will have to wait until 2022 to feel part of the Shire and enjoy the title of Daedalic Entertainment. Of course, every time we know more details of the game.
We recently got to see the first gameplay of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, where some light was shed on the combat system, stealth and other details of its gameplay. And, as we already knew for a long time, the PS5 version you will benefit from some advantagessuch as the haptic functions of the DualSense.
But not only that. At the moment we do not know its performance and resolution on Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch or PS4, but Jonas Hüsges, from Daedalic, has made it clear that The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will run at 60 FPS in its version for PlayStation 5.
”A trend that is already evident is increasing the number of games to 60 fps. No doubt this too is a priority for us. Gollum is agile and his movement is vital to our gameplay, so it is very important that the game feels responsive at all times” Hüsges explains.
It stands to reason that a game like The Lord of the Rings: Gollum works at said frame rate, because handling the Gollum creature needs to be agile, fast and intuitive. Since we will not be able to face some enemies, stealth will be a determining factor in the game, as well as the goings-on and deception.
Hüsges has also referred to PS5 and its amazing hardware, which has allowed them to apply certain settings in The Lord of the Rings: Gollum. In particular, it highlights the fast SSD of the console, the haptic functions of the DualSense controller and what the new generation of consoles means.

”I am curious to know how the SSD will affect tier design. PS5 aims to lower barriers between players and games in all areas (load times, haptic response, audio, visuals) to make the experience as immersive as possible. Some of the technologies are more striking, such as the adaptive triggers of the DualSense, but everything is based on this idea. The next generation it’s not just a trick. It’s about you feeling closer to the game than ever”
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC next year 2022, still no release date, but with total fidelity to the universe created by Tolkien.
