Watch Volume's hounds, knights and archers while listening to Gollum

Volume has a brand new trailer that introduces viewers to the upcoming pacifist stealth game's cadre of enemies.

Press play above to meet the Pawn, Turret, Knight, Rogue, Hound and Archer in Volume's dark, polygonal world.

In the background, you'll hear Andy Serkis, the actor who portrayed Gollum in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, as well as Caesar in the Planet of the Apes reboot. Serkis' video game roles include Monkey in Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. He's also set to star in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first trailer for which he provided the voiceover.

Volume, in development from Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell, is scheduled for a 2015 release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Mac and Windows PC. For more on the game, be sure to read Polygon's interview with Bithell, in which he explains how he's designing Volume to include a different kind of hero.
