Despite sporting a 2024 release date, there’s still relatively little information to be found about cozy hobbit-centric game Tales of the Shire. A new teaser released today shows precious little in a seven second video, but it does show off a new piece of art that depicts the game’s vision of the Shire.

The teaser begins on the same book showcased in the game’s initial teaser released last year, zooming in to animated splash art that shows a pleasant outlook on Hobbiton, complete with hobbits, farm animals, and hobbit holes. While the teaser doesn’t have any gameplay or screenshots, it’s likely the game will be graphically similar to the new artwork.

Tales of the Shire: A Lord of the Rings game is billed as a “heart-warming” game set in the world of Lord of the Rings, and more specifically within the hobbit-occupied Shire. The game is being developed by Weta Workshop (which has its own internal game studio) and Private Division, the studio behind The Outer Worlds, OlliOlli World, and more.

The game is expected to be out sometime in 2024 on consoles and PC, but other than that details are currently scarce. Due to the tone of the teasers and the general vibes of Hobbiton in the Lord of the Rings series, it’s easy to imagine a Stardew Valley-style cozy farming sim. Hopefully this teaser is heralding that more news from Tales of the Shire is on the horizon.
