Warner Bros. Announces Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Posted on November 12, 2013 AT 09:15am

Warner Bros. has announced Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

In Shadow of Mordor players will take on the role of Tailon, a ranger who witnesses his whole family slain in front of him on the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor, before his own life is taken also. Tailon is then resurrected by a Spirit of vengeance and given Wraith abilities to help destroy those that have wronged him.

“In Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, players will explore the dark and very personal theme of vengeance in a world where decisions have a consequence, and those consequences persist even after death,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The game introduces new gameplay mechanics to the action genre, creating opportunities for emergent and customized gameplay that will be rewarding for players.”

The game also features the Nemesis System, which allows enemies to be shaped by player actions, creating archenemies who remember player actions and adapt to fighting styles as the game progresses.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
