Unlike previous installments in the Amnesia series, The Bunker will ditch the linear format and adopt a semi-open world to encourage emergent gameplay.
In this latest entry in the Amnesia franchise, players will take on the role of Henri Clement, a French soldier stuck underground in a claustrophobic bunker.

Throughout the game, players will be given a variety of choices that will affect Gollum’s personality. Depending on which side of his dual personality you choose to play, his reactions will be altered in certain gameplay sections and dialogue. This means that the story of The Lord of the Rings will be heavily impacted by the decisions you make as you journey through Gollum’s story. You’ll need to decide whether to be friendly or aggressive towards your allies and enemies.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be released on May 25, 2023, for PCs on Steam, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on PS Store, for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on Xbox Store. The Nintendo Switch version of the game will came out sometime later in 2023.
