Middle-earth


 

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was considered to have taken a fair share of inspiration from other popular action-adventure games, but the sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, takes it a step further with a blatant Assassin’s Creed series reference.

The Orcs of Mordor have a wide range of personalities, and with this comes a mildly excessive amount of talking. It is in this frequent dialogue that players may discover a rather obvious nod to the Assassin’s Creed games.

“I’m an assassin,” players may overhear one Orc say to another, to which his companion replies, “We’re all assassins, it’s like a creed!”

A small portion of the game’s dialogue was delivered by actor Kumail Nanjiani, who voices one of the game’s many captains. Nanjiani was recently on an episode of Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer, where he revealed that the goofy delivery of his lines was actually intentional.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is slated to launch October 10th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. To learn how we at EGM felt about the experience, check out our full Shadow of War review.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808

Shadow of War has a hard-to-spot tribute to Assassin’s Creed

Attentive Shadow of War players will find an Assassin-themed Easter egg hidden within the game's dialogue.
