Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Trailer Showcases a Rad Game

Until yesterday I’d never heard of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Monolith’s new game that shows you what happened inbetween The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In this game you’ll play as Talion, a ranger of Gondor who gets possessed by a wraith and then uses his new found powers to systematically assassinate a variety of orcs and Uruk-hai. This gameplay trailer for Shadow of Mordor shows off some cool abilities you can use and details the nemesis system which sounds too crazy to actually be true. Give it a watch!

For a game that I didn’t even know existed until recently, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor looks like a guaranteed fun time. What do you guys think about this trailer? Are you on-board for some orc killing?

  1. It does look superb, and its funny that I only seem to be hearing about it now too. Is it running on the assassins creed engine? the climbing looks eerily similar.

  2. I had my doubts about this, but this actually looks really interesting. Doing more stuff in the LOTR universe is right up my alley, and it seems like they’ve found some smart ways to incorporate all the different gameplay elements.
