While many of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum’s biggest problems appear in the game’s design itself and are unlikely to ever be fixed, Daedalic Entertainment says it is working on bug fixes and technical issues.
“Our development team is working hard to address the bugs and technical issues that many of you have encountered. We are committed to providing you with updates that allow you to enjoy the game to its fullest potential.”
