We'll finally get to see the first ever gameplay footage of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum during the Future Games Show pre-show next week.

Publisher and developer Daedalic Entertainment has been confirmed as The Future Games Show pre-show partner, meaning that those who tune in to the showcase a bit earlier will be treated to a 15-minute showcase of seven upcoming titles from Daedalic, including the world premiere debut of Gollum gameplay footage.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is an action-adventure game, and will be a canonical story in the Middle-Earth mythos. It follows the titular creature after he discovers The One Ring, set before the events of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The game was initially due to release in 2021, but has since been delayed until 2022.

In addition, the pre-show will feature new announcements, walkthroughs, gameplay trailers and new feature reveals for some of Daedalic’s most anticipated games including Hidden Deep, Glitchpunk and more.

"We really enjoyed the first two Future Games Shows last year so we’re delighted to be starting the show later this month," Carsten Fichtelmann, CEO and founder of Daedalic Entertainment, said. "We’re excited to give fans a closer look at some of our games coming in 2021 and beyond with new reveals and surprises along the way. We can’t wait to see you on March 25!”
