Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
Gamers will be able to once again battle the forces of Mordor on September 30 when Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor launches for 360, PS3, PS4, and Xbox One. PC gamers will get their chance shortly thereafter via Steam on October 2. As the ranger Talion, players will find themselves guided by the Spirit of Vengeance in a war against Sauron and his forces after the death of his family. The game uses a new mechanic dubbed the Nemesis System, which allows the computer to keep track of the player’s action with each enemy so that future encounters play out differently, with an archenemies emerging before the end.
Warner Bros. is expanding the Tolkien universe’s presence in gaming soon with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor for PC as well as current- and next-gen consoles. In this original tale, players will take on the role of the ranger Talion in a tale of revenge. After Sauron’s forces murder his family, he sets out deep into Mordor after being resurrected by the Spirit of Vengeance to seek justice. Now with the powers of a Wraith, players will guide him through a maze of enemies and friends as he makes allies and battles foes using a third-person combat system. Each enemy will be “a unique individual, differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses,” while the Nemesis System will track the player’s actions and shape relationships based on their decisions to create a dynamic world and story.
