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.
