Nacon will show LOTR: Gollum and Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown in a presentation this week

French publisher Nacon will be hosting its own presentation this week, designed to show off its upcoming titles.

The Nacon Connect presentation will take place on Thursday, July 7 at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST.

The show will stream on Nacon’s YouTube and Twitch channels, and promises to show the first footage of Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown.

According to Nacon, a total of 17 games will be shown off during the presentation.

The games due to be shown include:

  • ad infinitum
  • blood-bowl
  • Chief Life
  • Clash: Artifacts of Chaos
  • hell is us
  • The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
  • RoboCop: Rogue City
  • Session
  • Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown
  • War Hospital
  • WRC Generations
  • Five more “exclusive reveals”

Test Drive Unlimited: Solar Crown will be the first game in the Test Drive series for a decade, and was previously scheduled to be released in September 2022 for all formats.

However, Nacon announced in May that the game had been delayed until 2023, and that the PS4 and Xbox One versions had been cancelled.

Originally announced in July 2020, the third game in the Test Drive franchise’s open world Unlimited sub-series promises to let players get to grips with “extraordinary cars” in “a luxurious island world recreated at 1:1 scale”.

“The brand new Test Drive Unlimited keeps the DNA from the first games, and revamps it for the modern era,” according to the blurb accompanying a trailer released last April.

It was confirmed in May that The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will be coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S and PC on September 1, with a Switch version planned for later in the year.

Billed as a story-driven action-adventure game, Gollum was first announced in March 2019, when developer Daedalic said it would “remain true to the vision laid out in JRR Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and will also explore new events and details related to Gollum’s journey.”

Meanwhile, RoboCop: Rogue City is in development at Teyon, the studio behind 2019 first-person shooter Terminator: Resistance. The game will be based on the first three films in the franchise and is aiming for a release in 2023.
