And the fun in May won’t stop there.

How Precious

No need to be sneaky about it — The Lord of the Rings: Gollum from Daedalic Entertainment comes to GeForce NOW when it releases on Thursday, May 25.

The action-adventure game and epic interactive experience takes place in parallel to the events described in The Fellowship of the Ring. Play as the enigmatic Gollum on his perilous journey and find out how he outwitted the most powerful characters in Middle-earth.

Climb the mountains of Mordor, sneak around Mirkwood and make difficult choices. Who will gain the upper hand: the cunning Gollum or the innocent Smeagol? Priority and Ultimate members can experience the epic story with support for RTX ray tracing and DLSS technology for AI-powered high-quality graphics, streaming across nearly any device with up to eight-hour sessions. Go Ultimate today with the one cloud gaming membership that rules them all.
