More On: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Warner announced today that the console versions of Middle Earth:Shadow of Mordor will now be available in the US on September 30th (PC gamers will have to wait until October 2nd).  This is good news for gamers as they game is no longer in direct competition with Alien:Isolation and a the other games that are hitting shelves that date.

The game looks great and I was impressed with what I saw at E3 this year.  The concept for the game game does come off a bit like a "Middle Earth: Climbing the Corporate Ladder of Evil" at times but the combat, strategy, and graphics make this a game that you'll want to keep your eyes on.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated action game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, will be available in the Americas onTuesday, September 30 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. PC and Steam will be available worldwide on October 2. 

Based on hearing fans’ excitement over the latest chronicle in Middle-earth, WBIE will release the action game earlier than originally planned at all participating retailers. In the game, players will experience the depth of the Nemesis System, where every enemy is unique, differentiated by their appearance, personality, strengths and weaknesses. These enemies are shaped by their encounters with the player to create personal archenemies who are unique to every gameplay session.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a vibrant game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate. Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. Based on the player’s actions with the in-game Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal archenemy through the course of the game.  As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.
