The Lord of the Rings: Gollum will explore a part of Gollum's life that doesn't appear in the books. Gollum will encounter some characters from the movies and books during his time in Mordor.

Will characters from the books or movies appear in The Lord of the Rings: Gollum?

Yes, the characters currently confirmed are Thranduil, the Elven King of the Woodland Realm, Gandalf, and the Mouth of Sauron, Sauron's Herald and messenger. Harald Riegler, producer at Daedalic Entertainment, confirmed these in a PlayStation video for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum.

What cameos are in The Lord of the Rings: Gollum?

From the Steam FAQ for The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, we know that Gollum will meet Gandalf face to face. During the game, Gandalf will interrogate Gollum after he has been captured by Sauron. Based on what we know, it will be up to the player to decide how Gollum will react.

It has been a matter of much speculation regarding how Gandalf would lead Frodo into Mordor, but this may provide an answer. Gollum was an expert at sneaking into and out of Mordor, and he would eventually lead Frodo to Mount Doom. Gandalf may have gotten the idea to sneak Frodo and the One Ring into Mordor and eventually to Mount Doom from this conversation. The only thing mentioned about the Mouth of Sauron is that his face will eventually be seen in the game. Thranduil will appear in some capacity for reasoning that is currently unknown.
