The trailer shows Gollum stalking a group of Orcs in a dark cave while the former Hobbit talks to himself. Gollum appears to use stealth and environmental hazards to defeat the orcs.
According to the description of the trailer:
“Use stealth, agility, and cunning to survive and overcome what lies ahead. Climb, leap, and grapple your way past dangers or onto advantageous spots. While Gollum might not be a fighter, it is not unlike him to assassinate a careless enemy when the chance presents itself – or dispose of them in more creative and… villainous ways.”
The description goes on to reveal a morality system in which player choices will impact the way Gollum or Smeagol behaves.
“Your decisions and how you play have a direct influence on Gollum’s personality: Always struggling between his two selves embodied by Gollum and Sméagol, it is up to you to decide whether you let darkness take over, or that spark of reason left in what was once a sun-loving hobbit. One mind, two egos – you decide!”
Following speculation, it’s been confirmed that the branching action-adventure game is currently in early development and will see players explore the world of The High Republic, which is set roughly 200 years before the well-known cinematic events of The Skywalker Saga.
