It already smelled strange in the progress and it seems that what was anticipated has finally been consummated, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is not the game we expected. It’s true that the concept itself already seemed strangeA game of Gollum can be very attractive to the biggest lovers of the saga, but in general the world of Esdla could attract much better characters to create a story with.
Aside from the game concepts, the worst part is that it looks like the game has come to market with a lot of problems. In Xbox Generation we are already analyzing it and soon we will tell you our impressions, but first we can tell you that the game seems to have been released without ending. The state of the game has been teased on social media since it went on sale yesterday and now we can tell you that fixes are coming and also an apology as confirmed by Daedalic in a statement.
Daedalic apologizes for the release of Lord of the Rings: Gollum
We would like to sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience many of you had with The Lord of the Rings: Gollum upon its release. We recognize and deeply regret that the game did not live up to the expectations we set for ourselves or our dedicated community. Please accept our sincere apologies for any disappointment this may have caused.
Our goal as a studio and as passionate fans of The Lord of the Rings has always been to tell an engaging and immersive story-driven adventure. Creating a story with Middle-earth as our playground has been the greatest honor and challenge we’ve faced so far. At Daedalic, we understand that the success of a game depends on the enjoyment and satisfaction of its players. We really appreciate your feedback and have actively listened to your voices, read your feedback, and considered the constructive criticism and suggestions you have provided.
Our development team has worked diligently to resolve bugs and technical issues that many of you have encountered. We are committed to providing you with fixes that allow you to fully enjoy the game.
Once again, we deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding during this time. We will continue to keep you informed of our progress and provide transparent communication regarding upcoming fixes and improvements. Your passion and dedication as players has been the driving force behind our determination to get it right.
As you can read in the quote above, the team sings the mea culpa and they promise to keep working to be able to come up with patches that fix all the issues the game is dragging. Certainly on a technical level they can solve it, but in concept it will continue to be what it is, a game that seems outdated and that only the interest in Gollum does not seem enough to keep it afloat,
