While Gollum has been making his presence felt in this year's Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, the man that brought him to life is about to lend his talents to another game. Indie developer Mike Bithell, creator of Thomas Was Alone, announced today that Serkis would be lending his talents to his next game, Volume.

Indie Haven confirmed the news earlier today from the GameCity event. Serkis will voice villainous CEO Guy Gisborne, who will seek to stop main protagonist Rob Locksley. As the character names imply, Volume is a modern-day Robin Hood tale, with players taking control of Locksley as he uses silence and stealth to commit crimes against the monolithic Gisborne corporation without being seen.

Volume is set to release in 2015 and will debut exclusively on PlayStation 4 and Vita. You can watch the most recent trailer from Gamescom, featuring Thomas Was Alone narrator Danny Wallace, below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
