When Nacon effectively re-revealed The Lord of the Rings: Gollum as a 2023 title at its recent Nacon Connect event, we felt a little more optimistic about how the game was coming along. It seems that the devs behind the game have been given some extra time to polish things up, and finally, we now have a specific release date.

LOTR: Gollum is launching on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on May 25th, 2023. We'll drop the game's latest trailer up above, but it is the same one that we saw during the Nacon Connect event earlier this month.

If you want to catch some new gameplay from this upcoming Lord of the Rings title, the team will be showing some off on Twitch later today, at 10:30am PST / 1:30pm EST / 5:30pm GMT. Here's what to expect from the full game on Xbox:

"The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure. Embark on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to you. Climb, leap, and sneak your way past dangers or into advantageous spots. Gollum is skillful and sly, and torn by a split personality. It is up to you to decide whether to yield to the darker side of Gollum or trust the kinder gentler hint of Sméagol."

Is this LOTR adventure on your radar? Let us know if you might pick it up in May!
