Game publisher Nacon has announced a brand new Nacon Connect showcase set for 7 July 2022 that will expand on 17 upcoming games, including The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, Chef Life: A Restaurant Simulator, Blood Bowl 3, RoboCop: Rogue City, Test Drive Unlimited Solar Crown, and WRC Generations. In addition, the company has promised five exclusive reveals for upcoming games – although there are currently no clues about what these actually are.

The Nacon Connect showcase will air live on YouTube and Twitch, and should give good glimpses at the upcoming games Nacon has in store. Of the announced titles, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will likely be the most popular reveal, given the fanbase of the beloved book franchise.

Currently, the game is set to launch on 1 September 2022 for PC and consoles, after a number of delays. Early trailers have shown off an intriguing and gloomy high fantasy world, with fan-favourite LotR villain Gollum in the starring role. It appears Gollum will be leading players through the world of Mordor in this adventure, with Styx-like stealth mechanics allowing players to slip nimbly past roaming orcs and other terrifying beasts.
