Warner Bros. Interactive is sending adventurers back to Mordor today with the release of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The open-world action title takes place between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and puts players in the role of Talion, a Gondorian Ranger of the Black Gate on a quest for revenge. After Sauron kills him and his family, Talion is resurrected by a Wraith Spirit and sets off to battle Sauron’s forces and discover why he was brought back to life. Each enemy Tailon faces will result in a procedurally generated encounter that is said to be unique to each player, with enemies featuring different strengths, appearances, and missions. And as part of their pact with the wraith, players will be able to control the enemies they encounter, forming an army of their own.
